I am making arrangements to 'adopt' an off the track quarter horse from his breeder. He's been out in pasture for awhile and she said she had shoes put on him yesterday and noticed he has a quarter crack. She says it should grow out totally fine.
Ok, any good/bad/indifferent experiences with a quarter crack? I've never dealt with one before so I don't really know the risks involved.
I would really appreciate any advice or information you can give me. I am getting him as a barrel prospect and any risk of permanent or reoccuring lameness is a problem.
