I was going to post some pic's of the hooves we trimmed yesterday and I labeled them all on a piece of paper as to which hoof it was, BUT, when they downloaded in the puter, they weren't in order!
So, instead I thought I would post some pic's of what their hoof looked like before when our traditional farrier was doing all of the trimming.
The before pic's were 10 weeks post trim. He liked to have us on a 12 week schedule and I had to plead with him to come back in 10 weeks. I finally convinced him to come back a bit early when I told him I was having trouble with my horse tripping after about 6-8 weeks post trim.
My husband and I are still trying to grow out a good hoof on them. We started in November. We are very much still in the process of learning ourselves. Slowly, but surely, we are getting there.
Sorry, I don't know how to make those thumbnail pictures so have to post pictures the only way I know how.
