Loosie...Normally Id agree with you, but based on what we have seen so far, Im going to say its likely rasped and doesnt look beveled around the edge either. I remain unimpressed until better photos become available lol. So far nothing we have seen is blowing my skirt up.

I know you shouldn't give too much credence to first impressions, but without watching the vid you attached Boo, that woman looks scary! Trinity's avatar pic looks all warm & fuzzy in comparison!

Yes BTW Trinity, I am inclined to think that we don't disagree on this, but I just know I've been caught making wrong assumptions based on a couple of pics before(& know how different things can look in pics to real life too), so this is why I tend to question the possibility, rather than 'calling' something unless it's really obvious - like the bars left overgrown.

I am generally the skeptic until proven otherwise making inferences on what we already know. If we'd never seen this foot before and all I had was the last picture, I would be more kind I think and reserve saying much till we saw more views. However since we saw the previous foot this farrier produced which was completely unacceptable and blamed on hoof growth which we both know is very likely impossible, I am inclined to be less than forgiving if you know what I mean. So yes we agree, Im just mean (teehee) and less than inclined to be nice since we have already seen a trim at 4 weeks out LOL

I know this is an old thread but my horse has those "Hairs" on her hooves too! I think it's to do with damp conditions? She shed one of her frogs last week and another is about to do the same...
My mares frogs arn't in very good condition at the moment as she's always walking on damp ground (No matter how much straw I put in her stable, she always pees on it and walks it everywhere!) I was told to wash them with dilute apple cider vinegar then spray iodine on them.
Did you ever solve the problem?

yes it turns out when she shed off their frogs, the fingerlike hairs are actually the thing that makes thenew frogs and are only showing temporarily then are covered my new frog.
