Pic 4 are the fronts. They were even longer before the trim and actually bending/breaking forward to a different angle and the very tips (if that makes sense?).
This farrier did say they needed more work, but didn't want to take off too much as he may get sore. I got the impression it was going to take more than one trim to get them right. He also said heels were more worn down because of the long toes as opposed to underrun?
I thought he might return sooner than 8 weeks to do some more work on them, but when I asked he said 8 weeks. What would be more reasonable, 5-6 weeks? I could call and schedule him sooner, I am sure.
I would like to give this farrier a chance as he comes recommended by my trainer and others. This horse, unfortunately, had not been on a regularly trimming schedule previously, so that didn't do him any favors.
I am in the Northwest Denver area, BTW.
