Also sorry to hear that.
I was worried by what you posted, that he had major rotation, and not just snow packs making those feet appear as they did.
Having a horse that has foundered, managing her, one becomes very attuned to founder, and that extreme sole sensitivity indicating that there is not much sole between the inner structures of that hoof, and the ground

@loosie @Smilie thanks been a rough few weeks but i'm slowly coming to terms with what happened. Other horses are doing good still getting a bit ouchy when it gets icy out. It's really icy now with all the melting of snow over the last week or so. Think i'll post about diet for the horses i have left, farrier said what i'm feeding could be part of the ouchy footed problem.
