My boyfriend has a percheron (black) and a missouri fox trotter (brown). I'm not sure their feet are being cut properly. The percheron has an indentation on his back left hoof and it is documented in his papers. However, it had caused a crack when he was being used by an Amish man. It is almost gone, but never fully gone, even right after a trim. The farrier never files the sides of his feet and I think they're flaring. Also, his front toes are turned out, no matter how he stands. She never works to correct this and his feet are very rough on the sides and sometimes chip right after a trim. The pictures I attached are from yesterday. She trimmed his feet on Saturday (after only 3 weeks) because his hoof wall is too thick for her to cut through. Please also observe the picture from the front of his hoof in the grass. He seems to have a hole almost in the hoof. (I apologize for the image quality. I was using an older phone to take the pictures.)
The fox trotter was not trimmed when she last came. He's gone about 4 weeks now. He often trips and I feel his toes are too long, even right after a trim. His frogs are very far up in the hoof and are not touching the ground (I couldn't get a get picture of them in the light). Also, I've never seen his farrier trim their soles at all. I think they may be starting to get crushed heels, but I'm not sure. Please let me know what you think of their feet. I'm pretty worried about them.
Here's a picture of them, just because they're gorgeous.
