    Are his heels wonky?

    Something I have noticed with my last two horses is their heels on the back feet seem so low to me. I will be honest, I know next to nothing about how a foot should be trimmed. That is why I came here :) I have had 2 different farriers trim Gavyn, and they both seemed to have done similar things with his feet, though the man I had doing my horses for the last 3 years (Gavyn and my old horse Romeo) the only time he did Gavyn he left a "Wing" on his back feet, I am not sure what they are actually called, but they irritated me.
    Sorry to be rambling, I guess I will just post pics and see what you all think. Oh and the main reason I am asking is because it has been brought to my attention that Gavyn has a strange way of moving, and this is the spot I was told to try first.
    I am trying to find better pics, I might just need to take more tomorrow.

    He's good as far as the backs go. His front heals look long.
    It could cause him to move strange if his weight is shifted to the back.

    Can not evaluate the hooves at all from those pictures. Sorry. We need CLOSE ups taken with the camera ON the floor pointing directly level ,straight from the sides, and pictures of the soles with the camera pointing exactly straight at the middle of the soles.
