Front hooves








The stuff that looks black and goey is just wet dirt (I didn't even notice it until I looked at the pic, it looks normal in real life).


Back hooves:








He stands normaly:


And this is where he is (concrete) I am not shure why.

Oh I should also add, there was nobody there today (it's the horses day off) but I will be there on saturday again and so will my trainer. Even if I don't know much about laminitis at that point I will still bring it up, because it is possible she is just not aware of his hooves.
It may be hard for me to learn much about laminitis because I have to get a lot of grades (6) at school by the 8th of June.

Well at least you know enough not to use that farrier if you have/get a horse! Yeah, you see some terrible egs, and it may or may not be necessary to 'bite your tongue' & say nothing. If you know little too, it's more likely to be taken badly... tho often it is anyway! So... you can't fix the world, so choose your 'battles' carefully!

But yeah, if you care about horses it is very difficult to 'turn a blind eye', and I don't personally feel it is right either - if no one will speak up for a horse/practice... As you say, the owner may just be ignorant(I believe that's the case generally with negligence, not that they knowingly allow it), and how can anyone ever learn better if they don't get told that they don't know??

So... of the horses pictured, yes, I'd be concerned enough to comment on the foundered pony at least, and I do appreciate lack of time etc, but I would endeavor to learn a bit about it before bringing it up. lamenessprevention.org & hoofrehab.com are 2 good sources to start with... you can really get 'deep' with the heap of info there, but you should get a better idea of the basic principles without spending too much time.

The other factor is that it's very possible(common in so many areas) that there are few if any really knowledgeable farriers, and this one may be the best of a bad bunch or such. Also consider the 'politics' of that & careful not to 'burn your bridges'...

Best wishes for you & those horses, that it goes well.

OK, speaking of spending too much time... couldn't help myself...

For your further info, I've drawn on some of your pics. **This is as a VERY ROUGH idea for you - can't really be more precise just from those pics. The green lines indicate roughly where the heels & toes 'should' be. In dealing with chronically deformed feet, it is also often not possible just to lop off the excess back to 'ideal' in one fell swoop, it would take time with regular good trimming to 'bring them back'.

The sole shot, which has the lines indicating how far back the heel & toe 'should'(roughly) be... you will find info on lamenessprevention.org as to how/why to work that out.

Unfortunately, this horse, unless someone makes drastic changes, will hurt for the rest of it's life. Sorry, there is nothing, you as a person, can do. Just be kind to the horse.

I am not here to promote anythingNo, that's not true, I am here to promote everything equestrian and everyone enjoying horses!

I come back from school tiday at a little after 1pm and am going to be at the barn at 4, which gives me about 2,5h, which should be enough time to read about founder.
