That’s neglect.


thedarkonespr0npicks

Shit. I just noticed that *both* horses are being treated this way.


CJ_Barker

Bout to say, one in the back is the exact same way


Sofa-King-Done

That's just abuse.


poetrickster

Isn’t this how they would look in the wild?


OhlordohHek

No they would wear down due to rough terrain.


BlinkoHighHeelss

Not interesting, just bad ownership


AlarmedSnek

Pretty sure that’s animal abuse


kmurph72

Apparently horses in the wild walk around all day which leads to their hooves being self trimmed. This is a case of a horse that did not walk around at all and was not taken care of at all.


leopb24

I was getting close to a google search on how wild horses manage this - thanks!


StylezG_White

It’s the same for dogs. Walking and other physical activity “grinds” their nails. If dogs don’t get much walking, their nails will continue to grow and eventually curl into their paw pads. I used to bathe dogs in a grooming salon and have had to remove nails that had grown into the dog’s paws. And I’ve seen plenty of dogs that have had to alter the way they walk because their nails had grown so long.


[deleted]

Was wondering the same


ginga__

That does not look healthy for the horse.


Lithl

Because it's not


twohedwlf

That doesn't look interesting, that looks like serious neglect, especially looking at the state of his mane.


phantom_munkey

Probably painful for the horse


andyhick

For a human that would be like an excessively long toenail basically very uncomfortable


whentheworldquakes

Very. Sometimes they just euthanize when they reach that point.


Fit-Lettuce-3658

It’s neglectful disgusting abuse. If someone can’t take care of an animal entrust it to one that can


Glass-Ebb9867

This is not interesting. This is neglect .


smirkin_jenny

I've never seen anything like this before so it's somewhat interesting though?


5O0littleqs

Are other forms of abuse you’ve never seen before interesting?


smirkin_jenny

mh, possibly those instant karma videos


UtetopiaSS

Well yes.... people watch docos about serial killers, there's 60 minutes reports on rapists, news articles about Guantanamo Bay.. fuck.. even Auschwitz is open for tourists.


Amaz1n_blue

What is interesting about this? Obvious negligence.


DegeneratesInc

Seeing how a farrier gives that poor horse back its quality of life would be far more interesting.


getoffmygrassdevil

this is cut from a video that does exactly that. i dont see the point of posting just this part


[deleted]

OP loves suffering. Check their profile


lovelyb1ch66

This is severe neglect and animal cruelty, not sure what you find so interesting about it.


amandamandie

I truly hope this is a rescue horse , no reputable stud would ever have a horse in that horrific condition, that is animal cruelty!


[deleted]

The horse gets taken care of by a ferrier in the rest of the video but I guess that's just not interesting enough 🤷‍♀️


amandamandie

Oh so they left out the bit where the poor horse gets his feet corrected , why am I not surprised


seniorpga2032

OP is an idiot or an asshole.


[deleted]

OP's history speaks volumes


zooiemamaitshot

Saw this and looked and wish I didnt


TextFlimsy

That’s so cruel FFS


stephelan

Poor baby boy.


sfchimera

Thats cruel and neglectful! WTF?!


DoubleTreat8756

That’s horrible! If I saw someone’s animal in that condition in person I’d have to do something 😡


radiantwave

That is just sad.... The owner is an ass who has no idea how to care for his horse(s)


Wemblerry

holy shit call a farrier


mrk0w415ki

This is from a clip of hoof restoration. That part is more interesting..


TopOk4039

Animal abuse is interesting as fuck? Lol


sprawn

I suspect OP did not know that this was animal abuse.


[deleted]

Oh, they did. Check their shit


sprawn

Yeesh. Okay. OP is a moron.


Majestic_Internet_37

Arrest who allowed it to happen.


Somethin_gElse

Abuse, not interesting


Iwasonlsd2

not interesting just abuse


Squeeze_meTendies

What happens when wild horses get overgrown hooves? Like before people would take them? Would the break off? There’s no way horses thousands of years ago would just run around on mini rocking chairs all the time


CJ_Barker

They moved so much it self filed


MotherOfHippos

They move around so much everyday that they naturally get worn down.


Squeeze_meTendies

Ahhh makes sense. Thanks for the response🙏


DegeneratesInc

They run around on hard ground and chip bits off their hooves.


4215-5h00732

Wtf is wrong with people. That's not "interesting."


GurneyHa11eck

Can’t get it posted here but search Idaho horseshoeing school long hooves on arabian stud horse restoration on you tube for the happy ending to this story


fuckft

Downvote for animal abuse


Celia-c-w

Can we find out how to help these horses? This is straight abuse and not good for them at all.


[deleted]

They get them trimmed by a ferrier in the rest of the video. This was filmed by the folks that rescued them.


Celia-c-w

Oh thank goodness.😩🥹imagine how painful that must be to walk on! holy crap!


wtafwtmun

Yeah thats abuse not interesting


GoodSeaworthiness510

That’s so sad poor horses


crowmatt

Not interesting, just animal neglect. Poor horse...


Bleklteg

Only a moron thinks that anything other than neglect.


UnusGang

This isn’t *interesting* this is fucked up


Traditional-War-1655

Can’t be great for their knees


IdLetHerGiveMeAids

Cruel as fuck not interesting


Boru12

That hurts me to look at.


SwimmingBeneficial93

Horrible. Freak owners


publicen3myy

So a video of someone chained up and raped would be interesting to you also? Creepy fuck


Murky_Exchange829

Absolutely neglect…on the other hand, she worked with what she had and she gave hoof. See how she gave us some point work? How she gave balance. She is class. But clip his nails please that shit hurts bad.


olopithecus

Oh look, an abused horse! Isn't it so interesting?


Moods6950

Thats cruel! and neglect not a cool video . I hope he got help


Shot_Blueberry

Does this happen to wild horses?


Lithl

No. Wild horses are pretty much always on the move while awake, and they wear down their hooves naturally so this doesn't happen. A horse in this condition is both not being allowed to move very much _and_ not being taken care of by a farrier.


m1sch13v0us

The OP is disturbed. Their entire history is of people or animals suffering. They’re sharing this to spread their hate for the world to others. This isn’t interesting. It’s a pathetic attempt to be edgy.


Cottleston

This is what I'd imagine a cartoon of an Arabian Horse would look like, along with its rider wearing similarly pointed shoes, lmao


Used_Day1051

Would make sense as a cartoon. But damn, irl this just hurts to look at. That poor horse


smirkin_jenny

lmaoo they look like clogs


aznkor

Notice how unstable their joints are because their long hooves cause their feet to slide and rock


Donginthedark

fuck my ankles hurt just from watching this, you can even see how it can't stand still


brookeslegit2

My housemate bought a similar pair the other week, dead creps.


3now_3torm

I’m glad I was going crazy. I’m used to thinking a horses hooves should not look like that but maybe that’s just a thing this breed has. After looking at the comments it seems I was right. This isn’t interesting this is just abuse.


FalzQuaz

This is indeed abuse. This kind of neglect is very painful for the horse. It can lead to limb and dorsal affections, different kind of infections in the hoof area and so on. Eventually the animal being put to death.


Previous_Ad7725

Animal abuse!!!


Jenny7555144

I heard it’s like walking on your big toe nail, must hurt.


Pleasant_Monk_7611

The joints on that horse will suffer so terribly, especially on a hard surface like that


whentheworldquakes

That's actually a rocking horse


_Chapperz94

How did horses survive without humans?


[deleted]

Wild horse hooves get trimmed down from running around. Domestic horses get theirs trimmed by a ferrier. These ones were locked up and neglected


_Chapperz94

Sad


ExPatWharfRat

*farrier


[deleted]

Some people still say ferrier, french Canadians for example


ExPatWharfRat

Huh. Apparently, ferrier is a French reference to a blacksmith, i.e., ferrous metals being worked and one who works with ferrous metals would be a ferrier. Always like learning something new. Thanks!


[deleted]

I've also heard them called a "filer", which I like because it makes them sound like an aesthetician. 💅


XDanklebergx

I know that this is neglect, but how does this not happen in the wild??


Lawfulness-Manny

Would wild horses end up like this?


[deleted]

Must be some very slow horses. How can they even walk like that?


Ok-Drummer-746

I had neighbors years ago keeping 2 horses with grown out hooves like this in a pen of mud. We called authorities about it. Bc this is definitely neglect. Poor horses


Fickle_Claim_6796

I have so many questions...


Golfnpickle

Foundered.


blackcatmystery

Mexican pointy boots


Unbleachedt

Poor baby what is wrong with people.


nagahdoit

Abuse. 100%


Similar-Drawing-7513

That’s how nature intended


lawn_neglect

This horse is too busy making girl horses pregnant to walk anywhere. Such torture.
