    My gelding was doing same thing dragging his back toes and squaring them off. I trimmed his heel back to widest part of frog then shortened his toe up and no more dragging.

    Can't seem to get his fronts to quit squaring off and wearing down so bad.

    It looks like he is just wearing off excess hoof wall and long toes. His white line is stretched out at the quarters. IMO If you remove the excess wall all the way around, the toe dragging and flares will stop.

    I love his big wide frogs, nice looking feet, very healthy!

    ETA: and as Spirit said she did, the heels need to be trimmed back to the widest part of the frog.

    Youre welcome his feet have flare yet you can see he's still landing on his heels and the angles are pretty correct too.. hard to find em like that now!

    I have a fascination with people trimmin feet too-- and our dogs too but they only wanna eat the trimmins, lol.

    If he's draggin the toes theyre too long- trimmin the heels will encourage the toes to grow out more- I would ask the farrier to take the toe down (or you- sorry) -if that's not the problem id have a vet out to rule out medical issues.

    Im not 'callin' you- just some helpfulness because I care.

    WTF is 'piss footed'??

    Hi, Looks like your horse is long in the toes, as well as the rest, poss overgrown bars too, but can't say much from those pics except they look overdue for a trim - clean at least would help, and check out the link below to learn what's best for critique pix.

    Piss footed, probly more of a local term. Meaning piss poor feet.

    As I mentioned, last minute decision to take even those photos. And I totally agree they are not the quality they should be.

    But I think they have at least a clue as to what he's got happening. Enough I felt to ask the question.

    He's due. I'll take real pics after the trim.

    And so ya know, your link in your signature doesn't show up on mobile version of HF.

    Had him to vet I DON'T have a farrier and no his toes aren't to long. So all I can say is don't get me started iam not in a good mood..... my horse has issues its riding season and can't ride.

    Had a chiro out too he's lame and been that way now for to long in my book its beyond frustrating. Ok I have vet chiro involved can't do more then that it is what it is.

    HIS TOES AREN'T TO LONG there back to white line I do my own horses. There isn't a farrier around here that's worth paying.

    Phly, go to Bare Foot Horse, to the "do trim" page and check out "white line strategy", too.
    Easy reading and very logical

    Just vouching that long toes or high heels aren't the prob there. Yep, there's something going on, but that's not it in Spirit's case
