So the horse I'm buying/bought apparently has hooves that arent as hard as most horses and the wall of the hoof isnt as high as usual horses walls on their hooves are if that makes sense and so it's easier for him to get bruising in his hoof and atm where he's living theres alot of rocks in the paddocks and yesterday I went and was going to ride him but both me and the lady I'm buying him off agreed he was way too sore to ride yesterday. But anyway she's getting shoes put on just the front of him in a few days time. Im just wondering, how long do you think he will be sore after that? Will the shoes make him soree for a few days? He barefoot atm but he really needs the shoes since I'm going to be riding him alot now. But I am just wondering because I don't know much about shoeing to be honest, though she's going to ring me up when she finds out when the farriers coming out so that I can walk down there and see the farrier shoe him which im looking forward to seeing.
But anyway has anyone ever had a horse that had softer hooves then others? Or a horse that needed shoeing always?
He's a very healthy horse, not thin, not overly fat.
Also he's a very strange thoroughbred, he has one eye that is black with little white bits on the side and on the other side is fully brown. Its incredibly strange! Has anyone heard of that before? Or had a horse like that? I've heard of horses with blue eyes or just one blue so was just wondering if that's the same as that's.
Theres a photo of us if that helps at all, feet wise.
