So I was wondering ur opinion.here is the situation.
I have an 8 year old mustang I adopted she is very sensitive to situations but is amazing for me and my daughter. She foundered before we rescued her I had a farrier come out that the ranch I am boarding her at used. I stayed and watched and he was very calm and understanding to her. She had no pain after she was shoes in front trimmed in back. Well he was so post to be out last week but I had a fundraiser I to be to so I explained to him she did not need a full showing since it had only been three weeks but we were trying to get her on the other horses schedule so I told him he.could take her.out.look at her and then call me and let me know what he wanted to do. Well that never happened no call no text. So I kinda assumed she hit did not need done. Well I go out last night for a ride and first thing I notice is her feet were trimmed and not very well I might add. And a more on the gate for 95.00 no call no nothing and that's not all my Horse acted as if she had been hit multiple times.he acted so scared I felt so bad for her. Then she kicked at me when. I picked up her feet and the goods did not look all nice and smooth on the underside the backs even still Had a small chip in the side that could have easily been filed down. She did not act sore to me just really sad and upset so I thought a little ride out on the trail would make her feel better it did Brightin her mood. And I put her away for the night she chase me.and acted as if.she did not want me to leave. Worst of all I get a call from BO SAYING she.looks to be sore and asked if she can give her byte I said yes and have been trying.g to get.ahold of the farrier to no avail. My question is was he in the wrong to trim.my Horse he.did not really have my permission if he had even called me I was free and would have went out opinions please

As you gave him permission to take her out & look at her, he could have misunderstood that you didn't want her done without further communication. I would never allow anyone to work on my horses without myself or someone I trusted being present. When trimming, I rarely make exceptions even for friends, that the owner(or rep of) must be present when I'm trimming their horses. In the first case it's about my horse's welfare & in the second I'd just leave myself open to liability if anything went wrong, regardless of who may have been at fault.
