The thing is, this guy can't change. He is doing exactly what he has been taught.

Your horse absolutely should be trimmed and balanced medial to lateral according to the bone. I don't care what the exterior job looks like and the current traditional protocols for this are wrong. We ALL know imbalance causes long term issues. The radiographs tell the truth here. Her leg is what it is and this intentional imbalancing to make the foot "look" straighter is not correct.

I would just prefer they went somewhere else. It is my name out there if someone see's it. Hope that makes sense.

Those angles are atrocious!! Im now worried about the knees and joints not just the hooves..

Princess, I know you know a bit about hooves and what theyre supposed to look like- and what your horses angles are- if that was my farrier.. bah! Lol.

I was afraid to go to shoes because I couldn't touch up what I felt was not good. He would come and trim the horse (saving me a lot of time), and I would just have to level her heels and bring her toes back .

The shoe job itself is okay. The heels different heights is not. I would have left room for expansion on the hoof by a wider shoe.

He's a nice man and easy to get ahold of. Maybe I should as him one more time with some persistence? Or move on? Or go back to barefoot and try boots?

I appreciate the input, even Frank's,LOL Weather I'm right or wrong is one thing. But I post pics because I think it's educational to many, whatever the opinion. I sure learn a lot from posted pics from anyone here. I don't think there's any other forum on the web that has so many replies to each post. It's really special.

That's what's gone on for the past year. He trims. He leaves the toe long, and the insides high. I come the next day and back up the toe and level the foot. Then I ride her alot so it looks like she did it.

It sounds like you are doing more of the trim than he is. I'd either go back to doing it yourself, or find someone who can do what you need done, without you having to follow behind. If you are fixing the trim that much, you shouldn't be paying for it.

Iv been doing the same thing except I told farrier what I did he was like ok. Still does a crappy job and I still pay for it... yep I went the do them myself route but they need shoes tryed boots threre a real PITA.

Boots won't. Hold up to our riding so back to shoes not much choice 7 farriers later and still less then great work. Come winter I will trim my own over the winter and try and fix what farrier didn't.
