To me, looks like Bert has underslung heels. I would say his angles need to come up to be even with his angles of his pasterns.

what does underslung heels mean?

Look at the angle of his pasterns, now look at the angle of his heels. The heels are way steeper and under, slung under so to speak.

Wow I just learned that he hasnt had his feet done since I got him late dec-jan

Wow...that is one underrun heel. That heel is so far forward, it ends where the toe should end. That needs to be backup up a ton. Hope your farrier knows his stuff.

Well at least, if nothing else, you know that horse can grow some serious hoof. I can't believe they got that long in 4 months time. Usually if they get that long, they just get crushed under the weight of the horse. Once this farrier gets the hooves into better alignment, he should do very well.

I was suprised to and he's never ever been lame or had any type of hoof issue .... me thinks My boy has some pritty good feet except he's got a very mild case of thrush but its always raining here and the paddocks are hog fuel. Lol I took part of his hoof trimmings and tried to snap it nd holy was it hard!!
