Done the "slopes" on the frog and commissures.
You did fine. Round up the sharp edges to reduce distal wall damage and you're good to go.
Id like you please to elaborate on the bars depth regarding the unexfoliated sole as you described on point num 4 in your reply |
Here are the new pics
Point number 4 was informational only; not a recommendation. As I suggested earlier, your rasp work would take care of most of the problem. It did. Just keep doing what you're doing.
Here's another tidbit of information.
Your horse is base narrow in the hinds and toes out slightly in the fores. The fronts are a result of a mild fetlock valgus conformational defect. It's worse on the right side.
The base narrow conformation is asymmetric and is causing a medial/lateral imbalance in the hind feet. Load force is driving the right lateral heel forward. The opposite effect happens on the left hind. The right is worse than the left.
Not much you can do about that with just a trim. Shoes can be forged to help manage (not correct) the results of the imbalance.
Don't lose any sleep over it. I haven't seen a perfect horse since Secretariat.
