Tell her what you told us.... that you are a vet tech and experienced with lameness in horses, and though you are uncomfortable approaching her with the information, you feel that she should know that there may be possible lameness issues with her super sweet boy - "see here, see how this rotates in and his hoof looks like it's pointing down - that is because he is club footed and may be why he moves funny on that leg".... then as others suggested, give her the info of a good vet and farrier. Then let the chips fall where they may.

So I told her!

They weren't happy, but I just tried to explain where I was coming from etc. They sent an email to the sellers and are just trying to deal with it the best as they can.

He is currently not able to be ridden

Thanks all,

After they got over the anger etc, I think they appreciated what I was trying to tell them.
