I have recently acquired a TB 5 month old with a Cleft Palate. I was wondering if there was anyone else out there that has one with this problem and survived, and what issues have you faced. Has anyone ridden a horse with a cleft palate and what issue did you face?

I don't know about horses, but I've had puppies with a cleft. If it isn't too bad, sometimes they can go their entire life with no problems. Other times, they have to be put down because if they drink milk it will go into their lungs instead of their bellies and will drown.

I have never heard of a horse that had this problem before, and I hope to learn more.
