    However, if you don't know where you went wrong with this horse, the same is likely to happen again with a new one. Most horses will test you for the leadership position on a regular basis. If...

    I was thinking the same thing! :winkgrin:

    Several of the responses were also pretty lame regarding the periople. The periople is the hoof equivalent of the cuticle on a human nail. That "crusty...

    When was the last time he was trimmed/shod?

    Why was he out of work for so long?
