Hi. I just went and looked at a mare today that I'm thinking about buying. She's a very nice mare with a wonderful gait, and the only thing I saw was she had a small (about an inch long) lateral crack in the middle of her right front hoof. I rode her and it didn't bother her at all. The lady I met said she was selling her for a friend and she thought she had foundered and gotten an abscess that busted, but wasn't entirely sure. I was just wondering what yall think it may have been and if it could affect her at all? Also, she has had Strangles before, so can she get it again?
