She was quite upset about the "hole" I left. I told her I needed to see how thick, and I told her it retained dead sole and farrier should remove it. She's still kind of upset. I wrote down things for her to look up on the internet to see what I'm talking about. Never thanked me for removing the chips and some of the flare. Oh well!
Like I always say, never expect gratitude.
I don't like that process b/c if it is too thick you have to think harder.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
