I wouldn't do it.
Problems? Sores, infection, laminitis in the other foot, pain, limited ability to move (think spooks or moving quickly for a variety of reasons), housing, ground & surface precautions, frequent prosthetic changes, difficult farrier work, lifetime special cares.
I work with people who use prosthetics & they frequently have problems. The main difference is a person can use crutches or other assistive devices & can tell another what is going on.
