I know this might sound harsh but maybe for his sake you should have him euthanized, you said that you don't have many places around and his feet seriously need help. Club foots can be really painful. He is such a cutie though! You guys have any horse people around you guys (like a farrier or a vet?) Love his mane and tail and coat color.

You are an amazing woman Kvazar

I just finished reading about your rescue of Mister Pony, and the beautiful photos of him - oh his soul absolutely shines and reflects like a beautiful mirror how very special an angel you are and all the love, care and dedication you give to him. I think your story would be a wonderful book, maybe even to raise money to help Mister Pony and others in Russia. You are very gifted in so many ways, dear Kvazar. Sending you a lot of hugs from the US!

First of all. We've found out his routes.

His original name is Peak. Sound pretty strange to me...
His parents are both shetlands. And his mother is a result of inbreeding (father+daughter). I don't really know about negative side of such matings in ponys, but I think I wouldn't play jokes with genetics

I can't say I like his new-old name, but most people around him now call him Peakachu ))) It sounds pretty fun, so... agreed

About his health.

We won our fight with liver problems using supplements for liver and doing some injenction.
He is still bad with his teeth (tooth rasps are too big to make his M3 fixed), stomach and intestines... His condithion is not critical, but still too far to perfection. Since I'm perfectionist (yeah, all my live I try to make things better, even when 'things' doesn't need that ) I don't feel happy with that.

About hooves and legs.
Both hinds are much better, he uses them actively and never place them in a strange position anymore.
LF is unchanged. I decided to make the regular trim for it because it's much better then RF.
RF hoof is unchanged since the last photo of it (it stays clubfoot but without falling forward coronet), cause his RF knee is unstable and most of time he's got discomfort in his leg. He definately will need chondroprotectors, when we treat his digestive tract.

His mood.
OH MY GOD! He really thinks he is a KING! And we are all here his lieges ))) Little tyrant Everybody in our stable always cry: "Poor little pony, he's sick, we should give him more attention than everybody, best food and hay, fresh vegetables etc."
And our little monster feels this ))))))) And he uses our pity everyday to be uncontrollable So yes, he is the most spoiled horse here)))

Oh yes, completely forgot. He is a gelding now! We cut his 'extra parts' about 3 months ago. But don't tell him, he doesn't know yet. He thinks he is a studhorse, and every mare around is born for him

All old news are written I guess.

And the last one extremely amazing new.

He has moved! It was a long journey for both of us but it worth that.
I've tryed hard all this last year to make him a bit happier but I really felt like I could do more for him.
The best place for horses in Russia -Charity Fund for Equine Protection and Rehabilitation "Svetozar". It was established in 2011 by amazing horselovers (for they own money as usually without any help of state) for such pony and horses which are born handicapped or made disabled by humans for the rest of their lives. It located in 100 miles from Moscow on 370 acres of pastures. Their staff consist of great veterinarians, farriers, NH trainers. And since it's so close to Moscow there is availability to invite best Russian professionals and attend best equine clinics in Russia^^

Svetozar has known about Peak's story from me and kindly agreed to adopt him for free till the rest of his life...
