I can't wait for 'after' pictures from his trim... looks like plenty of growth at least, which certainly isn't the worst problem to have.

Holy long heels and toes. Wow and I thought my farrier I fired was bad. Your farrier beats the poor job my old farrier did.

Unfortunately Wallee, one cannot blindly trust all professionals of ANY ilk. As our animals' champions, it is up to us to thoroughly educate ourselves on their behalves.

I have my routine vet who administers to teeth and all other seasonal regular vetting, including basic injuries - love them. Then I have a diagnostic vet who's better at figuring out mystery issues. I simply found the first really uninventive in coming up with answers. Their basic practical skills are unmatched, however.
