Another thing~ She has been barefoot her entire life. I'm not a big fan of shoes at all, but in everyone's opinion, might shoes on the front help with the paddling issue? Apperently, the more upright hoof (I don't believe it is truly clubbed, but it is different from the other front hoof. . .) is a foot that she injured on a gate as a yearling. It is less upright then when I bought her last year, so I have hopes that with regular trimming it will become more normal. . . She has never been lame in the year I have owned her. I am not attached to doing high performance stuff with her, but if she is likely to become unsound in four more years just from trail riding, honestly I will probably give her away well before then. I have a friend who basically wants a horse to trail ride VERY occasionally, and if that is what she is likely suited for, they might be the perfect match! But, I really like her, and prefer to keep her if she will be suitable for moderate use. So, I'm really interested to hear more opinions!!
