Good luck with him, Nancy. As for the ringbone, I had a nice horse that went lame about 2 weeks after I got him. The vet took a radiograph of his hoof (with his shoe on if you can believe it) and declared ringbone. I had him in bar shoes for a while and he seemed to get better so I tired him in regular shoes and he was fine. One year after I got him and he was diagnosed, an abscess (and nail) burst out through his coronary band. No ringbone - just an abscess.
