In some of the pics I have a difficult time telling where the bars start and "end". Either way, the 3rd pic from the top - the left bar appears to be laying over a bit.
The hinds look better than the fronts to me.
You do not have a shot taken from the heels down. That would help to "round out" the pictures, I think. W/o that all I (a non expert) can say is the fronts appear to have to much heel on them, the walls appear to be higher than the sole in some areas - so maybe you got a little to enthusiastic w the rasp - or he has a lot of false sole. And the wall thickness seems different between the two (fronts) although that is likely due to the bevel and camera angle.
I don't really see a lot of thrush damage, so it must be on the run already. They look healthy over all and in general to me to the degree a sound trim would easily make them quite attractive.
oops...I thought it was 3 weeks before they would be trimmed. I would say he didn't get the fronts trimmed well enough 3 weeks ago, but again...there is no "heels downward" picture.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
