    See just giving her away is whats going to kill me. :-\ Know what she use to be able to do.. what she can do ground wise... everything.. it would kill me inside. Even the vet mentioned that she's very good at what ever she does. *sigh*

    Yeah, I can see how that'd be tough.. perhaps, if you choose to take that route, you can ask the new owners if you can visit occasionally?

    Because of the costs of corrective shoeing, etc, it's not really fair to ask $2000 for a pasture pet. :c We tried $300 for the pony, and people were emailing me saying 'that's too much.'

    I wouldn't give her away for free, just a small adoption fee to help make sure she gets a good home. But it doesn't matter how great her ground manners are, or how great of a ride she used to be if she's going to be a pasture pony. Unfortunately, she isn't a horse you can rehome as a horse for pony parties or some such thing. If you do rehome her, you'll have to swallow your pride and "settle" for just getting her into a great new home.

    I would be more than happy to give Wildey to someone if I was sure they would treat him like a king as a pasture pet (If anything ever happens to him) - And I could probably get $8,000 - $10,000 for him.

    Someone who treats your horse like a king/princess when they need it is worth ten times more than any monetary value.

    Just liek stated

    As long as she's treated with all the love in the world that's all I can ask for.

    Getting groomed everyday and given as many treats as that sweet little mare deserves.

    Try the corrective shoeing. What do you have to lose? I know a several horses that have had great success with corrective shoeing, and I'm talking A level Hunters and Jumpers.

    If you can find out what the suribus is and what exactly is happening to it, I'd be very interested.

    Very understandable. I'm very sorry for your bad news. :0( Sending prayers.

    I can't really give advice on Chance because I have no vet training, but if it were me, I would try the corrective shoeing and just see how it goes.

    My very first horse I'm sure would NEVER have passed a vet check, he had one front pastern that was almost totally fused in place, but he was a super first horse and I had him until he died recently at age 26 of colic. He was able to be lightly ridden the entire time I had him. Sometimes nature has a way of healing things, and it may not be perfect or pretty, but the horse can still be serviceable sound for many years.

    I hope that is the case for Chance. You can always try to find her a home if she stays unsound, so it might not hurt to try the shoeing and whatever else the vet recommends for a while and just see if she heals.
