Alright, I've just gotten back from having my horse's feet done. I only had a chance to snap a few pictures, but here is the finished product. I can take more pictures tomorrow if anyone wants them.
A front view (he was standing toed out on the RF - try as I might to get him squared up the outside was far more interesting!)
And then today my farrier pointed out to me some things he is seeing in the LF that he would like to try to correct this winter, I've summarized on this photo:
There are red lines outlining the problem areas, I've put them on the bars of the hoof and the areas where the hoof wall thins and weakens. I also put arrows to show where the nice, thick hoof wall on most of the hoof starts to thin out (just behind the widest part of the hoof).
The bars are quite bent and the hoof wall is quite weak, my farrier is saying this is worsened by as the hoof grows out, it grows out and forward, mostly toe, and takes the shoe up with it. He pointed out the very healthy frog on this hoof, and mentioned this is because of all the weight bearing it's doing.
He suggested what he would like to try come winter and the end of show season, I would like to see what the other farriers on the board would do as well. I really like his plan, but more options/discussion is always a good thing!
