Do you see underrun heels?

I am just wondering what you see in these pics? Are the heels underrun or pinched, or do I not know what I am looking at?

Not underrun, but the angle is a bit steeper than the angle of the pasterns, not horribly however. Frog is not pinched, that is a proper shoe job, shoe ends in the proper spots.

I think they look good. I would be very happy with that shoeing job.

No, these are not my horses. My farrier is moving away and I have to choose a new one. Very scary process for me.....

Captain....my current farrier, is leaving his clients in the hands of his apprentice.....Do you think the job done on Belle is adequate too to where I would stay with his apprentice? Or would the other farrier be better? I know I don't have the best pictures for a critique. I'm just stuck between a rock and a hard place right now. And Belle has been sound for a year now since I started with my current farrier.

While these pics not adequate to really judge well, I like the job on the first horse but the second eg leaves a lot to be desired.
