    warmblood cross free to good home
    He has his full winter coat right now and he lost weight being outside because he needed his teeth done so we brought him in and he is gaining but he doesn't look great. The second picture is during summer when he shed out. I bought him about 4 years ago to be a jumper from some people who I later found out didn't have the greatest reputation for buying and selling horses. When he came off the trailer his shoes were hanging off his hooves by one nail which later broke off and a piece stayed in his hoof. He was slightly "off" we thought it was because of his neglected farrier work so we got him trimmed and it didn't seem to help. He has been to a chiropractor with no improvement. He has been through x rays and they ruled out any fractures,breaks, navicular, etc. The next step was to start at the hoof and work up, blocking nerves to see where the pain is and then working from there, which may fix it. It is his right front leg, and it isn't a strong limp, just slightly but more apparent at the trot or when he turns sharply which has made farriers think he needs corrective shoeing. He throws shoes almost immediately. So if you wanted to try that approach he would have to be stalled with bell boots. We are still unsure of the exact cause and have tried old mac's hoof boots to see if cushion helped and it didn't. Someone said they had a horse with a similar problem and they started blocking the nerves and found the problem area and then treated it, the horse was sound and rideable after. The vets strongly recommend this, but after paying for board, vet care, specialty shoes, specialty boots I ran out of money for experimental treatments when I have 4 other boarded horses that I need to pay for. It might fix it, might not so you are taking a risk if you are willing to take him and try it. However, if you take him home and do the treatment and he doesn't improve and you want to give him back, I would be willing to take him. I just want to be honest so you know exactly what you are getting into. He is a super sweet horse, and when he sheds out and puts weight on he is stunning, but he hasn't been ridden for 4+ years and is a warmblood, so you would have to do some flatwork with him to build muscle and remind him of his training if his lameness is solved and you want to ride him. He is not for beginner riders because of this, and would be more suitable for someone with a dressage background. If there is anything else you would like to know I will do my best to answer any questions.
