I liked the wording of his ad, but I have a problem with how most farriers nowadays file off the periople form the hoof. Yes, it looks more finished, but that is a "natural" protection & should be left alone-IMO.

I was wondering about the whole rasping the outside of the hoof wall like that too.....

Other than the rasping away the periople he seems to be doing a pretty decent job. I'd like to see the sole also, tho. Maybe he won't rasp it if told? Or maybe he'd be offended if told.......

I think I will give him a try. He seemed very receptive to what I said and looked at Belle's xrays and pictures. He seemed to have a positive outlook on what he could do for her.

Hey Trinity! That means a lot coming from you! She is doing better....I rode her today a few times around the arena for the first time in weeks/months. She has started to feel less ouchy....I hadn't re-wrapped her feet and just been trying to have them grow out a little. I noticed her feeling better over the past several days and yesterday she ran around in the arena bucking and galloping...so I figured some light trotting would get the blood flow going again. We take it day by day for now. We will see how she looks at her next trim in November.

This farrier in San Diego I have been in touch with. He has seen her xrays and photos and seems to think he can help her. So, once everything is finalized here, I will travel down there to look at facilities and meet him!
