Feet like that don't grow overnight. Even if the horse had foundered initially that is a pure case of neglect.

How are you getting that those feet = extreme foundering? Those are slipper hooves/elf-shoes from long-term lack of trimming.

Yep, slipper hooves, not founder.

Looks like a really old picture, too. I'm sure the horse in that photo went to the Bridge a long time ago.

Omg... yeah major neglect. Probably though horses "self trim" themselves..

*sigh*

Good example of "natural hoofcare" of the domestic horse.

Cheers,
