Wrangler has been for sale for some time now. Due to two bad abscesses last fall selling has been on hold. The last time I had his shoes reset, everything was looking good so I readvertised him.
Someone that had called about him last year called again, came and looked at him and wanted him. Unfortunately, the day he came to look, Wrangler's hoof looked terrible. The abscess had grown out to just above the shoe nails, the crack widened and the hoof was weak and the shoe loose. But guess what?? The buyer's son is a farrier.
So, despite loosing the shoe and most of the hoof wall and now being lame again, he still wants him. So he is scheduled to leave on Friday morning.
This afternoon we spent some time painting.
