Me again.......I just read Brad's response and I totally agree.  We do not have shoes on any of our horses and they have very healthy feet.  We live in the rocks!!  We are close enough to you that we can assess your horse and offer any help.  Just let us know.

Hi Victoria,

Congratulations on getting a Peruvian horse. Maybe you can ask more specific questions about what help you are looking to receive. That may help getting replies.

I would recommend not using shoes. A horse's hoof will be healthier without shoes. I believe shoes should be used only when absolutely necessary for some reason.

Thank you.  I am having a bittersweet time with this horse.  I am 68 years old and have owned numerous horses since I was 16 years old.  I have never ridden a Peruvian or a Paso Fino, however I have ridden TWH, Saddlebreds, Standardbreds, and racking horses.  I am not riding this horse because he is so thin yet, and I am around 220 pounds; but majorly I am not riding him because he seemed a little lame.  I took him to the vet and he has slight arthritis on his right front fretlock on the joint on top of the hoof.  Vet said it was because his toes where so long and had probably been that way for a while.  He passed his flexion test and the vet was impressed with his pasterns, saying that some of the Peruvians he had seen and some that his friends have had a lot weaker looking tendons than he has.  We gave him a blocking test and found that he seemed fine except where the arthritis is on his hoof. That is when we xrayed him. I wanted him tested for DSLD, but the vet said he didn’t need to do it, but  if  he didn’t improve to bring him back in and they would take it from there. He is a 7 year old.  I am waiting on his papers.  I wish someone who knows Peruvians could come and give me some advice on this horse.  I have 4 other horses, so it is not like I am not able to enjoy riding.  I really do enjoy taking care of horses, and looking forward to the time when this fellow will fill out and blossom.  I started him on MSM.  I am not a supplement enthusiast.  But I have given him 4 doses now, and I feel that he is doing better.  Also, I feel I have a good horseshoer.  He trimmed his feet and put shoes on him.  I did not think about the horse never being shod before.  I now wonder if the weight of the shoes will make him more uncomfortable.  I purchased him registered, but he was a rescue horse.  The people did not seem to recognize he was slightly lame, since they were round penning him and riding him at a walk only.  I saw that his toes were long and felt that I could offer him some hope.  I was afraid someone would purchase him and not understand what they were dealing with.  That sounds a little arrogant, but it was my train of thought.  Any help you can give me or references to where I can go to get good help would be greatly appreciated.
