You said "There are some factors that inhibit shortening the toe on a barefoot horse. Thin soled, short foot height wise, etc.
An example...... This horse would be sore if the toe was trimmed back to the white line in an effort to "shorten" the toe."
And looking again, I suppose it depends where exactly you mean 'white line'(assuming stretched/lamellar wedge), but I don't find it to be the case, if the horse is backed/bevelled to the edge of the epidermal laminae.
