With the amount of pigeon toe she has, it must be hard to do a trim on her any time much less when she has an injury/crack to deal with.
I just went through the progression of photos for my husband. After all the OMG's and wow's the healing process has been amazing. Good job you two

Thanks. Amber did most of the work, I mostly just paid for it. :O

Not to minimize the pigeontoed trim work, but basically it's trim to the sole, not to try to correct the "look". Pigeontoed horses do wear unevenly so trimming more often can be very beneficial for them. With Ambers trims that is usually not too big of an issue. My DIL's mare, Gypsy is also pigeontoed so we're used to it.

About the pigeon toe trimming; and just in case anyone didn't catch it before..the recent pics are showing a hoof that is trimmed too short for most purposes, but this is a special situation. There IS still a little wall above the sole plane, but not enough, and after the pictures we put a protective cast on in lieu of boots. Please don't glance at the pics and think this is a regular trim to model yours after -it's NOT. This to rememedy several things that went wrong at once.

Okay, about her turned in feet...I don't necessarily trim to the sole, I just modify the bevel differently to keep the hoof wearing as evenly as possible between trims, which would throw healthy hooves out of balance in straight legged horses. Fit the trim to the horse, not the other way around.

AppyT, should I show one of the sole pics from you first bought Heidi? How flat and thin the soles were? This horse has come a long way. AppyT uses hoof boots, and that has helped a lot to build up sole and protect the feet when riding.
