Opinions please on ponies hooves
I posted this in the newbie section, but feel its probably better here.
I have just been to look a standard shetland pony for my children.
He is adorable is everyway and the perfect little gent for my children to learn on, but I have one concern with his feet.
He walks fine and shows no sign of lameness, but his hoofs seem to turn at the bottom.
I don't want to go ahead and buy him if its something more sinister than being in desperate need of a trim.
He is due to have the farrier visit in 5 days, so I know he needs a trim, but surely the ponies hooves shouldnt look like this if they have had him trimmed every 6-8 wks. He is barefoot.
I have added a picture where it can quite clearly be seen on his fronts.
Any advice would be gratefully received, thanks in advance.
