Okay, thanks. And when he was "exfoliating" is that typical of farriers?
I'm often asked, "how do you know how much material to remove from the horse's hoof?".
I usually answer, "I look at the hoof and remove everything that doesn't belong there".

Personally, I try to balance the foot around the center of articulation (COE) of the distal interphalangeal joint (DIPJ).
