    Could you post the other pics? What don't you like about the shoe job?

    Can't see much in those shots, but the high heels, I think?

    I'm not exactly sure what we're supposed to be looking at either. It certainly doesn't look like a perfect job, but we don't know, he might have been doing the best he could with what he had to work with. Just that first picture tells me that the horse probably toes out pretty it's likely the hooves are deformed a bit from the imbalance of poor conformation.

    Why don't you get some better pictures (you can look at Loosie's siggy for an instruction on how to take good pictures), then tell us what you think is wrong and why. Then we'll have better grounds to agree/disagree with your assessment.

    Glue ons? I don't see any nails.

    Oh, maybe I see it now. Just so shiny I couldn't see them.

    The horse does look toed out, and possibly clubby too. It's hard to judge a trim unless you know the starting point and the horse's issues to begin with. I'm not seeing a butcher job, but I don't have a reference point, either...

    L Foot, shod last Wednesday. Left foot has this bulge on the inside, and the hoof walls on the sides are slightly hanging over. The farrier is also determined to trim her Medial high to correct her toeing out. Which I keep telling him not to do. RF next post

    Right Foot 2 degree higher angle naturally. Won't stop shoeingtrimming medial high. Hoof 1 mm wider than shoe on sides. Medial high to straighten her hoof, but what about the knees that face out?

    Honestly-doesn't look HORRIBLE by any means, and like has been said-not sure what he had to work with in the beginning. I will say that you sound, to me, like you may be a bit of a difficult client......he "won't stop......" and measuring shoes/hooves by the MM........makes me wonder. Perhaps you need to go to farrier school if you know all the angles, etc........

    I don't understand why you don't just do it yourself if that ion constitutes a horrible farrier..

    That job is by NO means isn't perfect, but no one's is.

    I can understand you not wanting him to leave her medial higher because she toes out. But, we can't see any knees rotated out either..I see him toeing out at the pastern, not a completely rotated leg..but then again, we can't see the whole leg.

    I also have NEVER even heard of someone measuring a hoof aside from fitting boots or such..ever.

    From this post, I know I'd never take you on as a client. I don't go to a job to hear a client telling me how to do it. I can understand personal preference...but this is past that. Just do it yourself so you can do the "perfect" job. My horses' feet aren't perfect every trim either, not because I'm bad, but because I'm Human.
