I went to look at a nubian buck last night. The man who is boarding him has not touched his feet in a year. The buck has been on pasture--and we have had a horibbly wet year. His hooves were grown under all the way. When peeled back a bit--there looked to be signifcant rot under them. The poor guy was limping something awful! I actual thought he might fall down. I felt so sorry for him, as he seemed to also be in a great deal of pain. At least three of the feet look this way--I just didn't even want to see the other one I know I will not buy him at full price, and the owner understands this. My husband offered to go over and help the border trim up and treat his feet next weekend. I won't consider purchasing him until he seems to be walking better. Here is where the question comes in---the condition of his feet that I have described, I have never had to deal with. Is there anyone w/ footrot knowledge that can give me a reasonable assesment of his outlook? If we trim and treat, what do you think his chances are? He was a very tame, handlable, beautiful guy--so I want to give him a chance... whatda think?
