My horse had seen my previous farrier for 2 years and was always sound.
With moving to a new barn, I am using that barn's farriers. So he has been shod by them since last Nov. 12.
In the last month my horse has been less than sound in the fore, and my vet has determined (after a number of blocks, flexions, etc and fluroscopes) that the front hoof angles have been the issue. When my horse trots his RF pastern angle does not drop as much as the left. The LF heel seems or is underrun. The RF pastern angle is straighter. My vet is going to speak to my farriers and hopefully they will be on board.
This lameness issue took a while to appear. How long might it take to get back to him being sound?
