    There may be some misunderstanding on your part - you won't want to use the seller's vet for a PPE (though you may have concerns based on the horse not having had regular vet care, from the sounds of the seller's response). Also, the buyer is the one who pays for the PPE if one is done, not the seller. As the buyer, the PPE is protecting YOUR investment....so it is your expense to either have or not have.

    Perhaps wait and see if it's an abcess brewing in which case it could take up to six weeks to come to a head and drain. Initially the horse will be a bit lame then more so. Once the pressure inside the hoof is gone the horse is usually sound again.

    If you are still interested I would have your vet come out and look at him. I don't think you necessarily need a whole PPE. I would see what the vet thinks and go from there.

    If he is lame, he will not pass a PPE. That is the whole point of having the PPE; to determine whether the horse is sound or not.

    You could check back in a month or so and see how he is doing.

    Maybe have the vet out to determine what is making the horse lame in the first place. Not necessarily an exam to determine if the horse is unsound in the first place, as you already know it is, but to see if they can tell whether it is something that the horse will work out of/take minimal care to fix or if it is something that is seriously wrong and is not worth trying over.

    If it is inconclusive as to the exact nature of the lameness after an examination, walk away.

    Even if the vet finds a specific cause for the lameness, there is no proof that that is the only cause. Lame is lame.
