I agree with AC, this a tenderfooted horse that has been that way for some time, telling you with his absesses and soreness. His whole body is out of whack due to his sore feet, almost like you have pebbles in your shoe and have to walk around with them, eventually you walk funny to compensate for the annoyance, pain in your shoe, this causes the rest of your body to be out of whack & sore. Since he has been this way for a while, he needs the whole pricey rehab, chiro, RMT, vet, farrier to put some shoes on him.

He looks sore on both front feet. Although he does not have the classic lamenitis stance, the looks foundered to me.

Thank-you everyone.

I did not want to put my opinion out until I got a few opinions.

You are all seeing what I see. Muppetgirl, that is exactly how I feel from looking it him. The better question is what ISN'T sore on this horse.

I wanted to show his mommy this thread and hopefully she will decide what she wants to do with him. There isn't going to be any "I hope I can come ride him this summer" because I feel that he is in need of a lot. And it will cost. Hopefully he can be pain free again but I question that.

It is the front feet that abscess. His back hip clicks and really bothers him. His back right near the withers bothers him. His shoulders are sore. I have tried to flex him and do basic stretches per my chiropractors suggestions for him (without having paid for the chiropractor visit) but he literally cannot flex.

Also, I have a lot of supplements here and horses who are on them. I have been feeding him BL Pellets and MSM, paying for them myself since hes here and I feel bad for the little fella. So this is him on BL pellets and MSM already...

Could he possibly have some arthritis? To me it looks like he has a lot more than just arthritis but it may be a contributing factor. I rode a horse not all that much older than him that had arthritis flare ups once in a while. Just my two cents :)
