    Im late to the party but OH HOLY WOW those are bad feet with the worst farrier work I have ever seen. O.o this farrier is as lost as last years Easter egg. I so want to get my hands on them. I could fix that in a hot minute with some casting and a trim.

    Trinity, I believe you. I agree with you. I certainly would trust you with all the experience you have in the Right way to do things. With my mare, his days are numbered. If his work on my horse is unacceptable, He will be told to pull the shoes and I will fix whatever needs doing.

    I think I may go back to barefoot. The shoes are kindof a test to see if anything is ouching her feet/soles. So far she behaves the same. The first were steel shoes , and she was sensitive to the weight and got short strided, (she's a Tennessee walker). We went to a lighter shoe with an eased breakover in the front. She's still shortening her stride, and I have to work at keeping her in that long stepping gait. But due to my injury, I've only ridden her once with the aluminums. I'll have to decide if shoes are worth the walk down the road to the trail.

    He is a mor-on.

    My mare will be a nice model for my work after the class I'm going to take.

    If you want to pm me your location, I will help you find a farrier, like a real one, who knows something.
    Thankyou. If I decide to keep her in shoes, I'll need your help. But I do see her back barefoot in a month or two.

    Went down to the barn today. Lady was kind of in a rush to get home. She said the feet are totally epoxied. I looked down at them in the stall, and yes they are totally epoxied. I couldn't get a picture, too many people around.

    She said she's very happy. (?).

    Woah woah woah, that has to be the worst farrier job I've ever seen. The farrier should have been gone before he even started. I think that even a very in experienced horse person would realize that something is looking very wrong their

    Like, for real epoxy? Now, why did they do that? I'm so confused by the actions of these people!

    Wow! Talk about Sally Struthers school of Farriers. That is hands down the worst job I've ever seen. Glad you came here for help. Lots of us have been there with the bad ones. That's why we've all since learned what good feet look like and are now free to pass on the knowledge.

    Now it's epoxy. The poor horse. I think you should get the owner's address and send hoof info via postal mail to her.

    How can this farrier get away with this doing so many horses at the barn? How many other horses' feet look atrocious? Scarey.

    I can 'one up' you on bad farriers. This guy put shoes on a mare at my old barn. They where not all the same size, and they where 2-3 sizes to small and at one pint the guy used CUT EGGBARS! He cut the back, not even filed down the sharp edges, and put them on this poor mare. Poor thing could not even walk out of her stall. The 14 year old girl was giving the poor horse bute 3 TIMES A DAY! AND she galloped it on the pavement! Finally someone had pity and bought the horse from this girl (as her father was selling it because this was the 4th barn she was being kicked out of). Poor thing is STILL crippled and she has one of the best farriers in the valley working on her.
