How do you hot-fit a shoe, yet end up with a gap in the heel quarter? (7:09)
How?

When there is pre-existing damage at the quarter that exceeds the maximum depth of the properly trimmed and hot fitted distal wall.

Not to put a depressing spin on it, but how is it you didn't recognize that?

Cheers,

I know a gouged out quarter when I see it Mr. Fancey

Naturally-worn hooves don't have a machine-cut look like they do when they're rasped

So anyone that can work hot iron is "fancy" in your view? I sense someone struggling with some serious self esteem issues.

You think one of those world champion competitors gouged a quarter? Lord, I'd pay good money to watch you show them how it's done!

No you're Mr. Fancey. Take it as a compliment. It's honorable that you went to a good school and continue education. But you use textbook terms to describe things. The other farriers on here, including me, don't. So you're "fancy". (But I like to spell it FANCEY)

Yes he did gouge it out. Not that it's going to matter as far as how that horse goes. I'm just picking it apart for argument purposes. I watched David Wilson Sr. And David Wilson Jr. At a clinic (they had both not only won, but judged world shoeing contests) and they had a 1/8 inch gap around one side. It was a mistake and somebody questioned it. Sr. Said, "Have you ever seen a perfect shoe job"? I once had a popular World Show farrier showing me how it's done at a big show barn. I was in awe and when he was done, I picked up a front foot and the heel of the shoe was 1/2 inch from touching the hoof. I pointed it out and he just said, "Well I'll be dammed"
You said yourself in another thread that everyone makes mistakes and there's always room for improvement, right?
