    Looking at the bottom of his hoof , you can see where one side is still longer than the other, this needs fixed asap. Underslung heel, toe to long.

    With the better pics, those feet look pretty good. Yes, the usual back up the toe and back up the heel at each trim, and check your side to side balance.

    HOWever , many people would die for hooves like that on their horse! Them are some beautiful hooves!

    I agree with a previous post, I see the the work of a right-handed farrier. Check out this article.

    What I do about my past trimming is I look the next day and look for unbalance. And a few days after that. Cameras pick up on it pretty well. But the horse hoof and the camera have to be sitting on level ground.

    Sometimes it is truly hard to see it. Such is the nature of being a human. I agree with utilizing the camera. You can see a multitude of sins when you photograph the foot and from there the problem can be addressed.

    This will sound terrible probably, but around the barn I never wear my glasses...I bet that would help too lol! If I can see more clearly ;)

    I like the idea of pics though, can kind of keep a timeline too!
