I have a 5 year old thoroughbred mare who has a clubbed foot on her front left and what I call her "pancaked" foot on the front right.
I've had the same farrier for about a year and a half now and although I know it takes time to correct a horse's underrun heel I'm begging to feel like my farrier isn't doing anything to correct it at all. In fact after the last two times my mare has had her feet done I'm being more and more unhappy with how her feet look.
Clearly I don't know alot about shoeing. Is there something I can suggest to my farrier to do to help correct this crazy case of high low my mare has going on?
I've asked her about the flaring on the "flat" foot and how long the toe seems to be. She said it wouldn't make a difference shortening the toe when I asked. She may be right on that. Like I said I don't know alot about shoeing.
Anyway these aren't great pics and I can get more angles tomorrow but they should give you an idea of how they are. The pic of the clubbed foot she has more weight on her toe as she was eating. Also she always has the clubbed foot back when she is eating so who knows it may be a "grazing foot" as my old farrier suggested.
