Future reference on humane euthanasia, even if you can't get a vet to do it, if someone has a gun and knows the proper place to shoot a horse (you draw an X between the eyes and ears, and aim at the center--so shooting well above the eyes to target the brain), you can do an instantaneous, pain-free kill. But you must know exactly what you're doing, because you sure don't want to miss....

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...

Those are actually starting to look like real hoofs again! Great job on the improvement. How is he walking now?
I hope he'll keep on improving under your care! Well done :)

In summer we took pony to the beach and he liked to swim a lot.
I guess he doesn't feel pain or discomfort in his legs in a water

Sometimes he's galloping (I really can't understand how )

With a friend...

I can't say he walks much much better.
But he improved with his front for sure, and he can go downhill now without falling and stumbling

Oh, btw... Rick Redden agreed to comment our x-rays and maybe even recommend something. So now I'm looking for a place to make them.

How'd you get in contact with Rick Redden?

But excellent job all around, all the same.
