I will be asking the farrier about his opinion on the hooves. You can see in the photo up of his eye, its just a normal eye with the white around it, not flecking or anything. He has no scars at all, a small sore on his bum from his paddock companion kicking him.
He wasnt lame when I rode him, nor was he sore and the owner did say that if I were going to buy him I'd need to eventually put shoes on him because of his soft hooves, the only reason he doesnt have them on now was because he was in paddock condition with no riding for a few months. He has a paddock companion that chases him around and bosses him for food so he may have been galloping around and hurt himself on the rocks.
