Well, left a message with my old farrier to see if he'd be willing to come out to take a look if I paid him some extra $$ for the mileage...or whether I could just trailer to him instead. I really really liked him, he did her hooves for years and I never had any issues with her. He's familiar with barefoot trimming AND shoeing and has a lot of experience. I always asked him to tell me if he ever suspected she would need shoes, and he always told me she has perfect hooves and didn't need them. I hope he sees that in her again and can correct some of this stuff going on :-/
