I'd bo't an arab in poor shape, his hooves had broken into long shards so he preferred moving backwards. These had to be trimmer before trailering and was done again in 30 days. About six weeks into his rehab of decent hay and 2 dewormings and started on oats, I'd never seen him canter and was getting concerned as he'd put on nice weight. The pasture buddy took a notion run run down a small hill, jump a log and that started a case of sillies. The arab started down the hill at a big trot, popped over the log and took off at the gallop. He ran and ran, bucking and running faster, stopping momentarily to blow, then going again. The show lasted about 15 min. What a joy to watch.
