    Not to be rude but I don't see a white sock in any of the photos you provided before? So this is just his fronts then?

    This is just the fronts from different angles, he doesn't have shoes on the back as he doesn't need them, the backs don't grow as quickly and they don't flare out or split so we just go for the front shoes right now.

    I thought the one foot didn't look quite short enough but maybe it's just because he hasn't been done in so long ? Also, do the nails look like they're too far into his foot? Because he's been lame since he got the shoes on but I'm not sure if its the nails or the chunk out of the front or what?
    One last thing, have you ever seen a farrier take out a chunk of hoof wall like that? I've never seen that and it's FREAKING ME OUT!! ������

    I don't know why hed rasp between the cracks and not take off the hoof wall to relieve the pressure- instead looks worse- I think it woulda been good if he nipped the hoof wall and rolled it properly though.


    Good- im wantin to see his bars and heels.


    Yeah- I remember everything.


    I think he left the one foot longer because he didnt know what to do with that crack? Its going to end up clubbed the way theyre trimmed as of now.. unless they already are-- another reason I wanna see the bottoms.


    The nails do look pretty high up on the hoof. That whole trim job looks pretty bad. And it looks like he took way more off that toe than needed-- he shoulda only taken the hoof wall and looks like he took too much-- I just noticed it was a crack same as the other side.. who did that?

    So he could be lame from too much toe being taken or the nails ? Will I most likely have to wait until he gets to see the farrier again in four weeks for him to be sound again or is it too hard to tell?

    Would you recommend I find a new farrier again?

    Sorry for the overload of questions I'm just really going crazy about this situation. They always say 'if you don't have feet, you don't have anything' so I'm worried that he'll always have bad feet or that this farrier just hacked off a chunk of hoof that's going to take months to grow back 😰AHH

    You can't blame the farrier if this horse is lame. He didn't have much to work with. He should have gotten both those front hooves the same length though. One probable cause of lameness is that he has blown out an abscess at some point. He may have been foundered or maybe he just got infection in those cracks. This is the picture I am referring to.

    He does have a blown out abscess but he was sound before he was shod. I trotted him in hand a few strides and he was always sound until now, he's not bad and he is getting a little better every day. I don't want to blame the farrier for anything because I am SO grateful for what he was able to do with the crappy situation I gave him. Given the situation, that man worked MIRACLES with this boys feet, I'm just wondering if I should continue with the same farrier or maybe try to find another? I'm terrible with feet so I have no clue what I'm looking at, I just know that his feet needed to be shorter than they were (obviously 😝) and that he needed front shoes to try to keep his feet from splitting anymore than they are.

    My opinion- in this situation its more important to get rid of that flare and those cracks need be relieved of the pressure.

    I agree his feet were messed up bad- - they look clubbed now though. And I don't agree with the shoes at all-- not because im anti shoes- this situation didnt call for them and they look too big.

    Well the farrier will be back in four weeks, probably closer to three weeks now..what should I ask of him? Smaller shoes, get rid of the flare, take off the cracks..anything else? Does clubbed just mean that the toe is too short and he has no heel?

    He gets hay (low quality) in the morning and at night , he gets beet pulp and grain in the afternoon, he is also out on a dirt (sand) paddock with no grass every other day.
