    Wwyd?

    I know of a young pony that is in the "early stages of founder" (though I'm not 100% on just what that entails for this particular pony) and if not rehomed immediately will be sent to the sale barn. The pony is otherwise well mannered, happy sort of pony and a good little lesson guy.

    WWYD??? Would you take him in if you had the room and the means of caring for him? Or would you pass?

    If you are willing to put the time and money into rehabbin him I would take him in... if he is just lamantic it won't be "that" bad

    Again I think my heart is getting tugged. I should have a sign "Send me your sick, lame and broken" yada yada yada.

    Like Peggy said, it depends if it is just light laminitis or if there is rotation beginning.

    Do you have the extra funds for vet care for him?

    I would find out more about the pony before I did anything (I'd probably want to see x rays just in case).

    Yeah they aren't willing to wait for a vet check (my request) so I think I'm going to have to pass. I can afford a certain amount of things but I'm not a) a rescue and b) have limitless funds.

    Smart decision on your choice.

    It always sucks when you can't help a horse in need but hopefully the pony will end up in a good home.

    I think your decision is a wise one. I know from experience of having had 2 horses with laminitis (founder) just how expensive it can be to care for them.

    I've helped find a rescue instead that can work with the pony. So that's something I guess.
