Victorbrine Cassini : How do horses in the wild, untamed, not get those overgrown hooves? Or do they?

jacktheripped : You have a good farrier. Keep him working ;)

Kerry Mulholland : I’m happy that you’re helping this pony but I hope you had a very candid and honest conversation with your very dear friend about neglecting this pony’s feet for so long. Education is key in solving the problem.

caveman Versace : Can you please tell that farrier to do some educational videos? Dude was very informative and maintained the attention of the viewer.

Lil Loo : Thank you for helping this pony and PLEASE continue to have the farrier out regularly (no more than 6 weeks apart) to trim and shape the feet. It takes time to get them right again, but with proper farrier attention, it will happen. And SHAME ON YOUR FRIEND for allowing such neglect to his feet. It's criminal, really.

Sonja Gaffer : shame on your friends for letting him get like this in the first place

John Michael : That farrier was experienced. It was a pleasure to watch the skill. I find it annoying that people keep horses and ponies and do not look after them. Perhaps they do not realise how expensive they are to keep.

Claire Scott : To be honest, I know nothing about horses and dint know their hooves could grow like this...it's must be uncomfortable for them 🙁

dtiydr : In my country (in Scandinavia) the farrier would have immediately press charges for cruelty to animal right to the police and the owner would have be sent in court and would have got into some serious shit for something like this and rightfully so!

aloe hu02 : Kids annoy me so much lol these farriers are great

Fyralynn : The fact he needed to be told to get a farrier worries me.

reflectedtooth : 6:31 horse casually takes a dump.

Laura Hafner : Founder is a permanent condition and can be caused by those long hooves he had. It’s not always caused be feed fever.☹️. He will need regular trims every 4 to 6 weeks for the rest of his life. Founder is painful and progressive. Thank you for giving that pony some relief.🙂

Makinley Warren : Your "friend" shouldn't own a horse if he can't even get his horses hooves trimmed. Like it's honestly so sad that he didn't care enough to bother calling someone. Just saying, if you can't afford to have a horse or you don't properly know how to take care of one than you shouldn't own one at all

Tracy Dowling : The pony needs a good wash. The mane needs washing, trimming and brushing. The tail needs to be combed. It wouldn't hurt to brush it everyday. Make sure you drench it ( worms ) and get a tooth person out to check their teeth. I've rescued horses and they themselves will reward you too!!

David Miller : Delamination its called lamanitus not founder. Founder is only when p3 rotates and drops. Have to have radiographs to check. Need a new farrier. He sounds like a "shoer" not a farrier. My 2 cent worth. I am a retired farrier. I had vets call me for opinions. I can't spell but I dam sure know how to trim.

Tator Kator : I recommend you teach this pony to drive. A horse with a skill always has a better chance of having a home. You don't have to be fancy as I taught my mini to drive having Never driven myself but I have ridden plenty (riding and driving are a bit different). You can even use it for farming via pulling small branches, clearing brush (make sure you have a collar not a breast strap), hauling fire wood, hay or even just to drive around for fun or to replace the fourwheeler.

2 legit : that is animal abuse, that owner should be charged for animal neglect.

Sceme1991 : Man that work gotta need some strong back

Jen C : This video needed 400% less children

G L : Now how about combing out her mane and tail? The mane could sure be shortened to keep it from clumping and tangling if it doesn't get regular attention.

cliff holder : kid picks up razor sharp hoof knife by the blade "that was close I was worried he was going to throw it in the pond".....

Kamikaze Yamamoto : I don't know why but I always enjoy watching farriers work. Great job! I'm a grown adult but I envy those little kids - they have the absolute best place to grow up. I wish I had been so lucky growing up.

Miraculous Rae : That is am awesome, very sensible and rare farrier. Gentle, knowledgeable, and not judgemental. Took the time to educate without being a snotty butt. Good luck deary. I just rescued a couple myself. :)

James Landholm : How do hooves naturally go down? just running around on rocks and stuff? Like wild horses and such.

HappyMV : You are doing great work. Most importantly, you setting such a wonderful example for your children and your viewers what it means to be kind to animals. Sending good energy your way!

Sammy Hallam : Charlie definitely has a new skip in his step with his new dancing shoes. Bless all the Farriers !

Spencer Wilton : Whoever allowed that poor animals hooves to get in that state should be prosecuted, they would be in the U.K. I'm alarmed that this apparent pony rescue place didn't immediately call the farrier as soon as the animal was taken in, clearly the problem needed immediate professional attention.

mdh6977 : How is the owner not charged with animal cruelty?!?

MerAngel12121 : Cooper, When there are children, ponds and things they can throw into the pond like farrier tools, might be a good idea to get yourself a strong magnet, tie it to a rope and have it ready to rescue said tossed tools, etc. : ) Just a thought. This series of horse rescuing, as well as any animal rescue, makes me cry Happy tears. Carry on. : )

J Cortese : Poor baby -- I hope he's moving better now. His joints and tendons must have ached from walking incorrectly for so long.

Darkhorse3211 : It would be a good idea to get a grazing muzzle for this pony for spring/fall when the grass is really lush to prevent another founder/lamanitis. This farrier is excellent.

goldenboygq9 : It's sad people let their horses get this bad smh

jadawin10 : In the country where I live (Switzerland) if you neglect a horse like that, the animal is confiscated and you end up in front of a judge.

MyPetsAtHomeChannel : thanks for helping this beautyful pony!

Sidilicious : Heels are still too long but waaaayyy better than it was!!!!

Robert B : This is neglect bordering on abuse. Your "dear friend" needs to seriously reconsider their animal husbandry, or not keep livestock at all. You should probably seriously consider if friends who would allow such shameful neglect to occur are a positive factor in your own life.

montanadoctor : Precious kids! Great farrier. Stop begging for ‘Go Fund Me’ money! Have some dignity!

Sailrjup12nh : How could someone let that happen to their horse! I am appalled! I agree with K below me!

Jacqueline Reed : Swelling inside the hooves(imagine having an infection under your fingernails,only much worse,because horses and ponies have to stand on those painful feet.)The soles of the hooves drop and the position of the coffin bone inside the hoof changes to some degree.Pads between the hoof and the horseshoes can sometimes make them more comfortable,but as has been mentioned,a horse or pony that founders will never be the same.I believe that Secretariat was euthanized because he had foundered and eventually his discomfort became so great that they felt it was time to free him from his pain.My father was a farrier and one of the horses he worked on regularly,a $500,000 champion Arabian stallion,had the same issue and like Secretariat,the padding and special shoes only helped so much and he too was humanely put down.There may be new methods of treatment now;my father retired decades ago.But this sort of thing can happen to any horse or pony,the legendary Secretariat,and your neighbor's pony.

miss lilkev : I didn’t realize hooves grew like fingernails.

Sydus : He needs to watch his kids better so they don't fall in the water.

Ao Chen : YouTube recommend this to me... Never thought I'd care so much about someone else's pony's hooves.

BabyK18316 : Man look at that man work! A true professional he knows what he’s doing too cool

colin958 : Good job, sir.

Joshua Schell : The pony was all kinds of happy when they asked it if things were better.

Shane Lamell : Great job and it will be nice to see you all on your new farm. Have a nice day.

Danae : encouraging little kids to go around unfenced water. yep, that's the way to do it.

NC redbird : Just breaks my heart to see any pony or house in this shape. I've had to get many back in shape after getting them from abuse or abandoned in this shape. I'll never understand how humans can do any animal like this. If they can't or don't want to put time and money it takes to keep them healthy and in a proper home they shouldn't get them. Glad there are others like you and I in this world that is willing to take these beautiful animals and give them the life they deserve. He's a beauty and a great addition to your family

beauch63 : keep caring for the animals!!
