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.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
