    Small update, I had the farrier come out (same one), and she agreed that she left too much sole on the last time, and did not charge me. I checked his joints and hooves early this morning, no heat at all, and I am happy to say that he is not limping at all today. He is already scheduled to be gelded on the 17th, so I will see what the vet says about his condition then. The farrier also told me that his hooves are healthy, and will come back again in 2 weeks free of charge again to make sure everything is going alright. Thank you for the advice everyone!

    By the way, I measured him this morning, and my estimate was quite off, he is @ 12.2 hands as of 10 minutes ago!

    Show us ;) I would NEVER leave a horse looking like that farrier did up there at the top. Lets see how good the work is now. You get one chance to develop healthy feet and legs and im sure you want them to be developing properly. We give unbiased opinions here free :)

    She said she intentionally left them long because I walk him on pavement daily. Since he's going to be resting for the next couple of weeks, she trimmed them down more. I'll get a pic up in the next couple hours or so.

    *sigh* I was afraid of that. Im on my phone but those pictures make me believe this farrier is lost as last years easter egg with remedial baby feet. Not to be the bearer of bad news, but it is what it is. Are those heels as long as they appear? You still have bar overgrowth and still have retained sole because of the mismanaged bars. Walking on concrete is a good thing. It conditions the foot. Turning this baby.out over varied hard and rough terrain is a fabulous thing for hoof development in a young horse.

    It would be worth your time to do a.real.set.of.critique photos with proper angles for a real evaluation. Google how to take good hoof pictures. Id link but im on my phone and its

    Well, it's nothing to have another farrier come out, I just like to give people a chance. I want my horse to grow properly more though. I won't cancel her coming back in two weeks though, so she can see what they're supposed to look like (hopefully).
