I think you did what you feltto be done, for whatever reason. It's not irrat want to have another farrier check out their horses hooves. It's just like getting a second opinion from another vet.My own farrier, I love him to death, he does great work on my horses, but I do sometimes get other farriers out to shoe/trim my horses to give me a second opinion on their hooves, and when I get my regular farrier back out, we address those issues. Of course, I make sure he knows that someoneelse did my horses hooves, and he's fine with it.Above all, the horse is yours and if you want another opinion, you are entitled to it and shouldn't have to explain your actions at all. The horse doesn't belong to your farrier, therefore she should just taken it in stride that you wanted another opinion for one reason or another and ended it there, IMO.
