    If he rarely gets grain and you gave him half a bucket worth I sure hope he is doing OK today. He was at risk of founder and such.

    He sure is a cutey.

    If that first photo is of him in his old home he really did not look abused with curved up hooves.

    Hi is doing good :)

    Unfortanatly, I don't have pics of his hooves when they were bad. We visited the day before we picked him up, and I asked if I could trim them. They curled up REALLY bad. He was very skinny, you just can't see it a whole lot from that pic. The vet said he needed to gain 35-50 pounds, and he has.

    If he doesn't wanna lead I would turn him, make it a little stressful on him if he doesn't wanna move (hold his head by his tummy), he will then turn- lossen up his toes.

    That's how I have to lead my gelding- he got so much better with in a matter of days.

    Yes. They are very stubborn and have set ideas on when they want to do things.

    Some farms use them to teach colts to lead. Donkey will get their way long before the colt does.

    OP - please have a farrier correct the angle on the hooves so the poor thing can move more comfortably.

    His hooves do not look like that AT ALL anymore. I have them corrected (and they were looked over by a farrier, who gave me a few tips for future trims).
