What did the farrier say? We have an OTTB that absolutely has to have shoes. It took us years, lots of supplements and 2 farriers to get his hooves sound. At almost 23, he's never had a lame day in his life except for hoof issues. IF this is what is going on with your horse, I fail to understand why the seller didn't address the issue.
I hope it's just tender feet needing supplements and proper hoof care. But hopes are fragile things upon which to base the purchase of a horse.
I do hope you really love this horse, because she's yours now. Feet and all. Good luck.
I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!
What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
