Re Bubble's comment, it could be as simple as those overlong toes causing issues.
Yes, his feet are "under construction" at the moment. Loosie should remember since they helped out with understanding my then farrier's not so great job and Romeo's super long toes.
Thanks again btw Loosie
What I was told by previous owners was that he was a Morgan/draft mix....but who knows. He is only 15hh. I am not too concerned with what he is though.
And that's a big yep....he is chunky as all get out. Sad thing is that many horses around here seem to be his size or bigger (weight wise). I don't know if many people who have horses for pets know what a normal, healthy horse is suppose to look like. I figure with the feeding schedule we have, fixing up his horrible feet, and keeping up the exercise he will get there and look like a brand new horse (hopefully). But, it does seem to take forever to drop those pounds. Keep your fingers crossed for us.
