This is why my boy is sooooo special :)

I have had a vet out to see black jack today and he said he has never seen a foal with 2 hoofs like my boy he can't tell me why he has but that he can't have it taken off at the equine hospital but he will have to stay for a while. The vet has taken away the pics I am going to post to you guys to asks another vet to see if he can live his life with the other foot and it have no probs cos there don't want to have to take it off if it will damage his leg cos it on his cannon bone so will will have to see but I just thought you would let you see why my boy is one in a million.

This ia a normal pic of black jack and 2 of his foot and his extra hoof lol

Awww he's cute!! Good luck with having the spare hoof/foot removed.

Being horseless is the pits!!

I betting your best bet is going to be to have it x-rayed as well to make sure it isn't attached to anything.

This is not totally unheard of, but not common either.

it don't hurt him I pick his feet up so the vet can do his job with out having to knock him out fully

This is how much going to pay the vet to get it removed

$775.20

Which is

£500

But to me its all worth it as they was going to put him down cos of this and send him for meat
