Tony the Pony

Tony was born with short tendons in his front legs, this means he walks on the fronts of his hooves.
We were advised by a vet (not ours) and a farrier to have him put down, but we admitted him to the horse hospital.

X-rays showed that the inside of his feet were fine and so his heels are trimmed carefully in order to angle his feet forward.
So far it is working and he now walks on his soles.
There are still improvements to be made but we're getting there.
