Ute,

You can't even begin to compare a feral / wild horse with that of a Thoroughbred - doing so isn't the wisest thing in the world. There are plenty of mechanical differences as well as physiological ones. It's like comparing a miniature horse to a shire.

Also, Pete Ramey mentions in his DVDs that wild horses are not known to founder. In addition, there's a documented story of a stallion who had a break in one of his front legs. He actually healed completely and had to be caught to get the hoof trimmed on the leg that was broken beore, since he had not used it normally. Yet Barbaro foundered with all the medical support he could possibly get.
