Training gaps or not, he's still a wondeful horse. He's a 5 year-old TNW gelding, the product of an accidental breeding between mother and son. He was a premi and because of that his hooves are deformed (They're completely flat on the bottom). I know he lacks muscle right now, but what do you think?

Gabe is gorgeous, and TALL. Glad to see you wear a helmet when you ride. Bay is my all-time favorite color. He looks to be nicely balanced and well-fed. Do you keep shoes on him?
He had shoes before, but doesn't now. His hooves are exceptionaly weak (From his premature deformaty) and I want to keep shoes off of him for as long as possible.
He is a nice looking horse. looks like you are having fun with him.

I would be interested in learning more about his feet and how a premature birth would affect them. Our Lottie was born 20 days early but has not had any residual affects.

I would appreciate it if you could post some pictures we could understand more about the problem.

If you want to have the picture appear directly in the post follow the directions below.

· Open an account at http://photobucket.com
· Click BROWSE on the add pictures screen and upload your picture from your hard drive. This make take some time depending on the size of your picture file
· When the upload is complete right click on the third line down titled “img” then COPY. With my computer I don’t have to highlight, when I right click all of the required file info is highlighted
· Now go to your post on the forum and put the cursor where you want the picture.
· Right click, PASTE and you are done.
· Good idea to use preview on forum to check size of the picture. If it is too large go back to photo bucket and use the edit function to reduce the size.
· You can also just double click on the uploaded photo in photo bucket after it is uploaded to check the size. If it is too large it makes everyone have to scroll left to right for all of the posts where the picture is present.

Here are the pics:

Good looking TWH. He looks like a poster child for the breed...that is just what a TWH is supposed to look like. I'll bet he bobs his head when he walks!

I'd love to see a closeup photo of those feet if you get a chance.
