Well, we JUST got Cody, weve had him a month or two, and he was underweight. The people who sold him to us got him super under-weight and there are TONS of picks of him eating green grass. He had bad feet when we adopted him, and it was only 1 hoof that started to founder, our farrier told us to not let him eat much grass, so we didn't, but he got worse, and 2 more feet came up with it. He was on sweet feed until last week (when the farrier came out) and so we took him off of the sweet feed and put him on something else (the farrier suggested... and my aunt does the feeding, I just pay cause I dont live with him. The Farrier also said that his feet need more moisture because they are getting too dry. So we have been putting this "wood tar"(thats not wwhat it is called, I just forget...) and his feet have gotten sugnificantly better just withen this week. So now the farrier is supposed to be out this weekend to put his special shoes on him, and he will hopefully be alot better soon.
