Unfortunately that's the fly in the ointment. A farrier is easy to find. A good one, not so much. I have a friend who recently had a horse shod for the first time. It had 5 years of fantastic feet before it was shod. Two shoeings in, he hooves are already starting to run forward, heels are contracting and the horse's stride is noticeably shorter. If you do decide to shoe, look at tons of the farrier's work that you choose to use and go with one that does work similar to what Anabel's pics look like. He's really doing some nice work.
