    There certainly appears to be more heal on the front hoofs than is needed. Also, (and it might be just me as I'm tired now - will be heading to bed presently) but are the angles different between the two fronts? When is the next trim due?

    P.S. Love the hair all over everything - the sure and best sign spring is coming!

    Hmm, funky feet & definitely in need of good farriery! Yes, there are a number of significant issues there that need to be addressed. Haven't got time ATM tho - I'll get back to you.

    What's the deal with him re feet? Eg have you had him long? How is he managed & fed? Has he had the same farrier for long? Has he been regularly trimmed?

    I've had him since October 2011. Until I brought him to the new barn in October, it's been a pain in the behind to get a farrier out. He's been done by the same farrier twice - not in a row though. The barn I'm at now gets a consistant farrier out, the one Walter has been trimmed by twice. I haven't met him yet, I've always been working when he is out. I'll be meeting him on Friday, before the vet.

    Walter was last trimmed on Feb 14. Prior to that was in December when he was at the trainers.

    He is on complete feed 12% & VTM (both from MasterFeeds), Equine Power 2000, and recently Glucosomine & MSM. And hay, water, and a blue mineral block in his stall.

    You can see the ridge on his hooves- it started growing out when I got him.

    :( Well..

    Vet appointment for tomorrow is cancelled.

    Walter tore his hind left leg open below the knee yesterday sometime before dinner. BO didn't notice because Walter came running up from the back of his pen to go inside for dinner, no limping, etc. This morning she realized it when she went to take him out and he wouldn't walk on it. She buted him and called me. Went out, and ya. It's not pretty. Called the vet out. She cleaned it and wrapped it. He's on penicillin and bute. Pretty bruised. The tendon is exposed, split open vertically. You can see the bone.

    She wants to know how it is on Monday. She thought he was being pretty tender on it, and might want to x-ray it. She took a quick look at his knees- said the right front is a little but swollen, and will want to look at them at some point.

    He's on stall rest for now.

    My poor babes. I will be starting a new thread to follow his healing. He's wrapped, with some ointment that is kinda like furosone- I can't remember the name right now. And then a quilt & standing wrap over that. We have to clean and re-wrap daily. I will post a picture when I get home- can't from work.
