So, back to pony.
Didn't know anything about his real name, so now he is Mister Pony. Sound pretty proudly to me
I found one farrier in our place who knows something about problem hoofs. He told me to put pony down. Our vet (she lives and works in Moscow) told me to put that farrier down. Hehe, russian humor, i love it))
So about hoofs the vet recommend me the same as MacabreMikolaj. It can't be worth, is it?
So I took a rasp and went with baby steps (i love how this sound: "baaaa-byyy steeeeeps").
Hind hooves: were trimmed with H.Strasser method for laminitis hooves.
Left front: trim it in according with sole level. Don't want to change everything about it because pony uses this leg much more then right front. So I'm afraid to change both of his front hooves at the same moment.
Right front: rrrr... The most scaring for me was that he couldn't go downhill - his right front hoof was like a ball - round, and his pastern fell forward every step (i know there is a name for this, i even know it in russian, but in english... =((((( ). So the first aim was to stop it...
Since I can't shoeing horses, I chose very hard ground for him to walk.
Teeth. Was awful. He is underbites + never seen toothrasp or dentist. When he chewed there was the sound like he was eating stones
Partially fixed them with my friend (shes got VERY strong arms
), the vet will finish the work this month.
Could he bite people like a giant termite because of discomfort in his mouth?
After his meeting with toothrasp he stopped biting. Himself. At all.
Now he is safe even for kids. Now he is an angel, loves grooming, scratching and hugs O_O
I'll try now to post some pics...
