What they are trying to tell you is that the foot needs @ 2 inches of dead horn/hoof trimmed off just to start with.

For all your farrier needs, GET BNT!

You're close to Mobile. We had the AFA convention there in March with around 1,000 farriers in attendance.

Call Phillip Box in Auburn. He's too far from you to do it himself but he knows most of the better farriers in Alabama and could probably point you in the right direction.

You can reach Phil here...

Box Forge Page 6.

Tell him that Mark Gough sent you.

Cheers,
Mark

Ack.. you're right! I glanced at your location instead of hers. Mea Culpa.

Guess we need to send her to Bill Adam's boy, right! We all know how Bill appreciates the barefoot trimmers.

Cheers,
Mark

I think this is some kind of joke. Would anyone that owned a horse need an opinion that those feet looked bad.

Yes, in this case, a BIG change would be perfectly appropriate, perfectly safe, very fast and very easy to accomplish... IF the practitioner knows what they're doing.

You're about $45, a good farrier and thirty minutes (or less) away from having a horse with generally healthy, normal looking feet.

Thanks... I'm actually beginning to wonder about the lady I've been talking to... I will be calling around for a few different farriers to see who will come out and fix this. I'm glad I've got you guys to help me out. Thanks so much :] Once I try a different person I will try and upload some photos of "after".

Get a new farrier...that is insane. Good thing the hoof wall stayed intact!

Love the analogy of cutting down a tree with a pocket knife!

It's amazing that hoof wall is still holdling itself up and didn't crumble. If nothing else, once a competent farrier comes to the rescue, they are probably dealing with strong feet.

Yeah. The inches of overgrowth. Off. Then worry about little things like the heel, etc. I would love to see more before pics, and definitely the afters!
