Many horses don't like beet pulp and the wetness helps spread the flavor of the supplement so am not surprised. I'd still go with a ration balancer. Wait..remission is a granule right? So why can't he just eat it plain? Have you tried that? There are other supplements out there as well.

Yogiwick, it is a powder so some kind of buffer is the only thing I can think of to get him to take it.

Here's the little cutie you guys have been helping out .

Oh my. He is very cute. <3<3.

His feet don't look that bad in the pic at least.

I know it comes in granules: Remission Hoof Supplement Animed ( - Supplements - Hoof Builders)

(Sorry for the long link) If you can't get it you could try spreading the powder on a treat of some sort.

Oh, thanks! I didn't know it came in granules. Good to know!

His feet are coming along, but it is going to be a long road. We have taken care of the first trim which makes it look a lot better. Here's what they used to look like.

Mind you this was only the preliminary trim to take off excess and give him his heel back. His next session is in a couple of weeks. Mercifully, other than the obvious difficulty walking with slipper feet, he doesn't appear to be in any pain and moves normally. Trots and plays with the other pony so I have high hopes for full recovery.



Several of the larger chunks after the trim and an entire frog that was doing it's best to exfoliate.


And I worked with both of the boys to get a better idea what they know and what they don't know. Frankie tacked up like a gentleman as usual and didn't mind me jostling the saddle in a manner similar to mounting. My hope is that he will one day be able to be some little boy or girl's first pony or at least, if he isn't sound for riding later, they can learn to catch, halter, lead, tie, groom...etc. with him.

Check out Bare Foot Horse, under"founder", or" foundered pony". Detailed explanation of a similar pony being trimmed
