WORST of the night!

18yr old "dead broke" TB. Super sweet horse. Tolerated 3 kids riding him as well as a multitude of other crazy stunts to show off how "bombproof" he was. All of these antics were just diversions! He was a great horse, as long as you didn't look at his feet! He had all the signs of being foundered~~bad! Every time they let him stop he would rock back off his front feet. He had new shoes and all the "ridges" were sanded off his feet. Didn't want to pick up either front foot. and of course what I call the classic founder flair. In long term cases the hoof gets this weird flair out starting about midway up the hoof. Plus this guy had a quarter crack that made Big Browns look like a chipped nail. His went all the way into the hair line!
Sold to some poor sucker for $400! I promise this horse will be lame in less than 2 days and they won't have a clue. Oh how I pray for this Saint!
