Wow, I looked up layzacres to see why you thought I was Rebecca and I didn't realize someone else had our farm name. We have been Lay Z Acres Minis since 2001. I do not have a website anymore although we are on facebook. My name is Belinda and we do not breed minis anymore. I have a group of 9 mini mares we use for therapy. I just took in a little dwarf colt that was born yesterday morning and I really think he could benefit from Magic Shoes. I have a farrier friend coming tomorrow to look at my little guys legs so we can get started on fixing them.

What's his name?
Were you able to get his Momma, too, at least until he is weaned?

I'm the lady that makes Little Bit's Magic Shoes....I would love to see some pix of your baby boy and some close ups of his legs and hooves.

BOY! He sure has tendon laxity in all of his little legs!
He is just ADORABLE!
Is he able to nurse well?

I can't tell for sure, from these pictures,(they are quite small), but it looks as tho he is going down in his pasterns(rocking back on his heels) in all 4 legs, and is he also rolling over to the outside of his left front?

You can't use Vettec's SuperFast adhesive on foal's hooves, until they are 3 weeks old, but you can use elasticon tape and tape tongue depressors to his hooves that are just rocked back, until then..... Has all the baby slippers been removed from his toes? I doubt that he would be able to wear them off on his own, like a foal will, that's walking up on it's hooves.

With the tongue depressors, you can cut them so that they fit from the toe and extend back behind his hoofs about an inch and a half or whatever it takes to get him up onto his hooves. They won't stay on like the shoes will, but it would be a start until he's old enough to wear some corrective shoes.
If his left front is indeed rolling over to the side as well as rocking back, you can try using the pipe protector foam to brace that leg.

That sounds great !
He is nursing fine. I need to take some new pics of him as this one is from the original owner who took the pic from when he was born. The woman cut his hooves for some stupid reason so I am going to trim up what I can today and also get him some special shoes made until it is time for magic shoes. :-)
I feel like if we can get him up on his front legs....we might have a chance for them to be somewhat okay. I know what u mean about the front leg rocking to the side and I think it does right now a little but with them getting stronger I am hoping to change that.
The back legs......I just don't know yet because they are everywhere lol !!!
He is 3 days old today so he has a chance. I will take better pics today and a video for you. I might need at phone number to text them to or an email to email them to you.
I do all my minis hooves and know alot about it and I have a dear friend that is a certified farrier that is coming over hopefully today. He wants to help get our little boy on the right track. :-)
Will update later.

Welcome to this great group. Keep up the great work on your beautiful baby. You are right to start now to correct his legs and hoofs. As he grows he will get stronger and hopefully straighten up. Janell can really help you fix him right up.

Janell.......I am waiting so impatiently for the farrier to put shoes on my little guy. I want them done yesterday....lol !!!
Anyway, he is doing so well but I am hoping I can get him up off his legs a little more so he can start benefiting from corrective shoes.
I have a friend that had a little guy and she bought a set of magic shoes from you. She only needed them on 3 legs so she only has 3 of them. The front two and one for the back. My question......can these benefit Tank or would his need to be made special for him?

Welcome to Little Bit's! What a cute little baby you have!! I was able to click on the pics to make them a bit bigger Wink The backs don't look too bad to me, they may strengthen on their own and the fronts will surely benefit from Magic Shoes. You came to the right place Very Happy Very Happy

Hi Belinda.....sorry, I didn't see your post yesterday" Embarassed

It will depend on what size your friend's horse's hooves were and what his needs were, compared to your little Tank's hooves and needs.....if they are the same, then of course you could apply the those shoes to Tank's hooves......can't remember, did you ever tell me what your friend's horse's name is.
If I know that, I can go back into his file and see what his shoe pattern is like, and then I can tell you if I think his shoes will work for your baby boy. Very Happy

Tank is the name of your baby, isnt it, or am I confusing him with another foal?
I have been having SO MANY folks contact me about the shoes for dwarf foals this spring!.... And with my bad case of CRS, it does t take much to confuse this OLD brain of mine!

Yes my babys name is Tank. :-)
The other babys name was Nicholas and it was Carolyn Martin with Lil Hoofs Farm in Ga. It was a dwarf she rescued but it has been quite a few years ago. He was a baby too so probably similar in size.

Thanks for the info, Belinda.

Found little Nicholas' file this evening......
Sent 3 shoes off to him 8/31/2004
In his pictures, he looks to be quite a bit older than your baby....just read where he was 6 months old in 2004
I also sent 3 shoes for him on 1/5/2005

From what I can gather from the few emails I printed from Carolyn, she did not keep the shoe on his right front, which was his worst leg.

Do you know if Nicholas is still alive or what has happened to him?
Do you have any of Nicholas' shoes?
