The Worst Case Of Hooves Neglect – Over 3 Feet Long!

Two neglected horses were brought at the Days And Farm Horse Rescue , after they were found in a stall with 3 feet of manure. According to the investigation, they lived like that without proper food or medical care, for almost 15 years. They are now on a rehabilitative treatment.

Along with this two horses there was also a miniature horse, which had to be euthanized, because she was living in pain. Unfortunately, she had ruptured ligaments that caused irreparable fetlock dislocation. The three of them were in a critical condition, but the miniature horse could not be rescued.

Before the horses were transported, a veterinarian and farrier had to work on the hooves of the horses. They could barely move, because their hooves were over 3 feet long! Every step they took was a risk of getting tangled in their own hooves. Prior to transport, they were sedated and portions of their hooves were removed.
