I like the shoeing. Looks like a bit wider than the hoof on the sides, but I like that for expansion.

I would call them, and interview. Ask them to look at your horse and telly YOU what they would do. If they answer correctly, they get the job!

I know what it's like asking til you're blue in the face for something as simple as backing up the toe. Would it really hurt them to just shorten the friggen toes?

That shoeing job isn't bad. At least they guy understands correct toe and heel unlike the apparent myriad of laminar wedge loving long toe farriers out there. I would give him a try. Don't feel bad that you've been through 3. It took me 7 to find one that is worth gold.

I like this guys work better than most I see. The white feet look like back feet so im not worried too much about the overhang. Also appears to be a club foot which means uneven is normal. I like that he has left heel support and not short shod the animal. His clinches are low and not even, but the trim looks nice.
