Let's see your work

There seem to be quite a few farriers/trimmers here that readily offer their advice regards management of the equine distal limb but rarely do I see any photos of their work.

Thought this would be a good opportunity for participating horse owners to see samples of work done by participating farriers and trimmers and offer their comments about that work.

So, farriers and trimmers, here's your chance to show off your stuff and see what horse owners think of it.

Should prove interesting and perhaps educational.

Cheers,
Mark

Nice work Horseman! Curious, how long did it take for all that new growth? That foot looks like it grows like a weed.

Not sure what new growth you are referring to. This horse grows hoof wall at what I'd call an average rate of about 1/4" per month and is kept on a 6 to 7 week cycle. I've provided service to this particular animal for several years now.

Thanks, I thought it would prove interesting. There are a number of practitioners that participate in the forum and seeing some of their work could provide fodder for good discussion.

I'm particularly interested in any questions posed by horse owners about any of the work posted in this thread.

Cheers,
Mark

No questions from me about the work you posted, I see a job well done. Do you have any of progression type of stuff with corrective work? I like seeing good corrective work and it could be educational for those with horses with hoof issues.

Great work! I'd love to see what you could do with Excel. Hey, you're not too far from here either!

I've posted quite a few photos of before/after corrective work on this forum and have done a few horses of owners who participate on this forum. Let's wait for others to post their own work. I thought some would have already done so by now.

There are three towns in Ohio called "Bethel". I'm located in the one near Cincinnati. If you're near there, send me a PM and let's talk about what your horse needs.

Cheers,
Mark

I guess it's a little further than I thought. Dang it!

One thought concerning this thread. You may also want to include the amount of time for the shoeing,trimming,whatever. As well as 1/2 set or full set and mods/corrections needed.

Pretty is as pretty does. I've show horses that need a quality finish. They get it and pay for it as well. I also have horses that walk directly into the mud from where I shoe. There time is of the essence and finish not so much.

Doesn't change what the horse needs, but both make a difference to a given group of customers.

Mark,
Was there a reason you shorted the lateral heel? Did it have anything to do w/ toeing in on that foot? If yes, a bit more roll in the toe on the lateral side might be a good thing.

Me, I just pull the shoe and don't worry so much where the frog is pointing if I'm not building the shoe.
