While I was recovering from surgery my BO took care of Cinny in regards to hooves. She just had her farrier do him when he did the lesson horses. The last 2 trims were from this farrier. He also did half the boarders horse's too so I figured all was ok. Well it wasn't.
When I started working Cinny again I noticed that he seemed really sore and stiff for the first 20 minutes, which isn't like him. Then other people started saying their horses were also stiff. Then my friend's came up completely lame and I heard through the grape vine hers wasn't the only one. All done by the same farrier the same day.
Each of Cinny's feet has a completely different angle. On two of them the heels are looking run under and his toes were left too long on all of them. So now I want to get MY farrier back in there but I'm wondering how long I should wait to correct Cinny. He was trimmed 5 weeks ago. It would be about his normal time for a trim (his toes grow really fast) but should I let him grow a little longer so there is more to work with when correcting him?
