Katie, is my BLM Wild mustang I adopted in 2014. I
brought her home in April. Mustangs have a great reputation for hardy hooves. However, she was in holding pens during her
key growth stages and her feet were a bit rough when I got her. She had developed a mild club foot, as well. I can't know
if it's genetic or from not being trained and therefore not getting regular trims. She hasn't been lame, but does show
a slight uneveness in her trot. However, rocks and pavement don't phase her and her hooves are quite healthy and
well developed. I wanted to show an example of how a horse may not have "perfect" hooves, yet still be healthy
and ready to go anywhere barefoot.
