MHHR welcomes our newest addition. As you can see he needs some groceries, but he is a total sweetheart who doesn’t let his leg slow him down. He’s got a long road ahead of him, but he’s in a good place now.
Getting his feet trimmed. We’ve learned through trial and error, trimming horses with this deformity can be tricky. What we do is we hoist them up on the front end as you can see here. We don’t lift them off the ground, but instead we just give them something to ‘lay down’ into when we life their good leg so they don’t have to put any weight on their bad limbs.
