    Some horses have that tiny little ski jump at the tip ... it's just their conformation.
  2. I thought the sudden change in angle from the...

    I thought the sudden change in angle from the coronary (actually a little bit lower than the true coronary band) was where the rot begins and the hoof wall (toe area) was separating while the sole...

    And this has been going on for a long time for it to get this bad.
  4. Ok, I was basing my idea that it might NOT have...

    Ok, I was basing my idea that it might NOT have rotated yet on the angle of the front of the coffin bone and it's alignment with the short and long pastern bones. I wasn't' sure about the palmer...

    JB, I know. I was just stating that I didn't think it had actually rotated YET. I would think it is well on it's way, but like I said, I'm no expert. The inside of the hoof wall still hugs the coffin...

    I'm one that doesn't think he has rotated or foundered YET. The hoof wall is distorted heavily due to the WLD (White Line Disease) which has eaten and rotted the area between the hoof wall and the...

    Good thing you got those x-rays :)

    No question. Definite pass. Poor horse.

    It's one thing to tackle a serious WLD case, a whole 'nuther problem looking at all of his arthritic changes with a...

    We're all sitting on the proverbial fence waiting and hoping this horse passes enough to be saved from the hellhole he has found himself in.
  11. I fell back on researching to the best of my...

    I fell back on researching to the best of my ability what was going on with these feet. Found out a lot and began treating it on my own.

    Even the veterinarians at the time were bloody clueless. ...

    I have fired 3 farriers over the WLD issue. Some farrriers call them "shoers", not farriers.

    They refused to acknowledge Houston We Have A Problem.

    I came up from Texas. Never even heard of...
  13. I agree that there should be x-rays for this...

    I agree that there should be x-rays for this horse, but in general I believe in at least starting to clean the feet up ASAP while waiting for the new vet and a good farrier that can do a proper...

    As a start.

    Soaking with something like White Lightening or Clean Trax is something that some farriers do when they run across something like this.
  16. His fronts are so distorted that, yes, it does...

    His fronts are so distorted that, yes, it does look a bit like he may have foundered, BUT there are a lot of other reasons that the hoof capsule can become so distorted, especially with extremely wet...

    You'd be surprised what some horses can tolerate and stay sound if rescued in time and allowed to recover with proper care.
  18. That's a fair question, SmartAlex.

    That's a fair question, SmartAlex.

    I have had a couple that are really bad .... it was only 1 shoeing job on one ... I couldn't get the guy out of the barn fast enough .... he had been up to trim my horse twice and did that part right...

    I got the impression that the OP was looking to maybe purchase this horse.

    No mention that he had actually foundered (even those his feet look so bad) ......

    So why did someone say he had and...

    So, has this horse foundered? Is that what is being said?

    I'd want to get x-rays of the front feet, coffin bones, pastern joints, and ultrasound the related soft tissues and tendons.

    If all of that shows up clean and the angles of the coffin bone and...

    Wow! That's a masterpiece of crappy shoeing if ever there was one.
