Quest just got his feet done this past Monday (9-16) afternoon. The pictures are 3 days later (Thursday). The trim was exactly 3 weeks and 6 days after the last trim. He's on a 4-week schedule. I'm going to start trimming him myself - at least this time before the farrier comes out again next month. To me, he has a couple of tricky feet and I want to make sure that trimming myself is the best thing to do for him.
I'm going to put what I see with each foot. Please feel free to add or correct me if I'm wrong.
I see the overall odd shape of the sole of the hoof m/l, virtually no concavity in the sole, narrow and elongated frog, a little flaring in the front (possibly stretched forward toe), inside grows almost straight vertically, outside looks to grow normally. This is the hoof that gave the farrier the cause to suggest to put shoes on the fronts because of the weird growing pattern.
