    Subbing to watch the progress on these hooves with a competent farrier/trimmer. Pics with results please and soon! :)

    No wonder the horse doesn't want to get up: it probably hurts and the balance is too difficult. Then you've more than likely got other health issues from the horse not moving properly or enough. But, as others have said, there is no reason not to get inches off of those walls immediately. Fine tuning may take a bit of time. And as for no thrush? Hmmm... I wouldn't count on that. Once those feet get properly trimmed up, I think you'll find some ickies in there still.

    Once the initial trim is done, I would have the farrier/trimmer come again in two weeks and reassess.

    Just keeping everyone updated, but I did manage to get a hold of another farrier (who was referenced to me by the local Equine Medical Center)... he won't be able to come out til Monday, but he's coming and he should get the job done well according to the people at the Center. :)

    Oh wow! Those hooves look amazing! How old is your horse? Lileek will be turning 30 in September.. and I was wondering if age has anything to do with the state of the hooves.

    I'm a farrier. The photos are some of my clients animals and vary significantly in age.

    Personally, I currently own ten, ranging in age from 6 to 14.

    Does age effect the state of a horse's hoof? I'm not aware of any age related changes associated with the state of the hoof wall. There certainly are age related changes one can observe in the internal structures of the distal limb. Most notable are various forms of arthritis.

    I've got a 37 year old I trim myself. I see no difference in her feet from when I got her at age 14. Maybe, just maybe her feet are a little harder. Kind of like my own nails that have become a little tougher over the years. Then again it may be me loosing a little power over the years. I do know for certain my back has changed.

    Good luck with the old girl and I'd love to see pictures.
