It appears that there is a heap of excess growth there. Perhaps the season & a big sole shed has caused her to 'suddenly' have excess, but she's looking well overdue for a trim. If that's a normal amount of excess for her at 7 weeks, I'd probably go for 4-5 weekly trims & see how she goes from there.
She's also got thrusy looking frogs & depending on the environment, I'd probably trim away those flappy bits.
Thanks for the replies! She has her feet trimmed every seven weeks....always. She is getting trimmed again this Friday. I see that her frog has a deep central sulcus, but we live in a very dry central california climate...no thrush issues. I'm wondering if her diet change since I've gotten her and the change in exercise may be causing extra growith and hoof changes? Her bars seem overgrown too and her heels have really gotten long. She uses her legs a little differntly since I've gotten her since she is no longer clipping her front heels, even with those long hoof walls now. We will see what the farrier does Friday.
