Relevant health or lameness issues

Barney is a crib biter and has in the past had flatulent colic. Can be ridden barefoot on soft going and this is preferable as he has been diagnosed with negative plane pedal bones which caused a bout of lameness about 5 years ago, when he was shod. Supporting shoes required for road work and hard going.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Abscess in near fore. Flatulent Colic
