  Thank you very much for the thoughts on Bandit's way of going.  I
beleive it is purely a mechanical thin with the hind legs.  He maintains
total soundness, but of course I am very careful never to overwork those
hind legs.
   the farier was here today and he has been able to trim and reset so the
hind  walls look good again.  I warned him not to try any corrections as
the horse is still sound. One hoof wall wears exactly to the ceter but the
other one  the left hind is worn off center, but I do not thing a
correction would help him to move better.  
  Bandit has been in training these past six months as a service horse, so
am am convinced that my $20,000 worth of trainig will have to keep him
going for the next twenty years.
  I would have prefered a mini, but one does what one can with what is
available.
  I trotted him out after the farrier left this morning, Just in hand as
the temperature is soaring agin.  He is still sound.
Love to read all of your horse reports.
