I've been thinking about getting a mini horse and have seen
a young mare who has clubfoot of one front foot.
she is about 3 years old and seems otherwise healthy and functional.
what should I look forward to if I purchase her?
Can this be fixed? She does need to see a farrier for sure,
will this help the clubbing? Am I looking at a lifetime of worry and expense?
Would she be facing a life of pain?
