I have told her there's no excuse for those hooves. I've gotten her solid advice on what has been done and what needs to be done.
Then in the next breath she goes whining to others that her horse has poor quality hooves and the farrier will fix them. (Uh huh). Very sad.
My other friend has a 3 year old fox trotter that has hooves that spread into pancakes where they were wider than high, chips and flares. A few weeks ago I started rolling the edges, and the hooves finally are starting to look real good. But same farrier , she said, tells her he doesn't know what a rolled edge is, but he will have to do it next time. (?)
I am too frustrated at this point to do or say anymore. You can lead a horse to water...................
My time is more valuable than spitting in the wind.
