Yes his feet do need to be done, he was due this week but his farrier is away and will be here friday. His feet aren't as bad as the pic shows, his hoof aas at a funny angle.
He never, ever has only the stall guard when not supervised. If he's hung up in it and i'm ignoring him, i'm still right next to him. I would never walk away with him like that. I originally used the chain type 2 of them and he found his way through it.
He has a solid door but he can't see over it- when he had a door he could see over he would let himself out or kick it non-stop.
So I like to let him have his stall guard when he can't go outside and i'm around so he can see and be part of the group.
I appreciate everyone's concerns but i'd never let him hurt himself - i've begun taking the guard completely out of his stall when the door is shut. This morning ws the first time he got his foot through it with the door shut- didn't think he could manage that :P I had a stall guard that was like his current one but had fabric netting blockig the holes, he promptly destroyed that too.
