Finally got a hold of the farrier to do his feet yesterday. I was expecting a little acting up but he really was very good. Tried to pull his hind right away but after finishing up my farrier checked his shoulders and hips and found he was out. So after putting him back in he was absolutely perfect and his feet look so much better. He will be going with my trainers mare to a barrel race next weekend just to start getting him out used to everything and standing at the trailer.

Might sound a bit thick, BUT what do you mean by "checked his shoulders and hips and found he was out" and how did he put him back in?

Well you run your fingers with pressure down the hips/shoulders /back and I wouldnt recommend trying to do it yourself but my farrier knows how to put him back in. Its hard to explain.

Just like with people a horse can be out in his hips, shoulders,back etc. My farrier knows how to check for this and put them back.

so here are some new pictures of Mr.handsome. You can definitely see his big ol belly better here. These show his first time I saddled him and really messed with him. It also shows a recent picture of his ear. We did get more puss out last night however we think we got it all out and are still giving him his medicine. In the last picture you can see the difference in where his eyes are. The one on the right is lower and almost seems like it was smashed in, this leads us to believe that at one point he was either kicked in the head or someone severely beat him in the head(less likely as I can touch him all over and even with the ear problem he isn't as head shy as that would probably make him.)

Handsome.

He almost looks like he's a palomino roan! But it's a bit hard to tell from these pictures.
