From what I can see, no side photos, it looks good.

I'll take some tomorrow, those photos were a few days after she had them done. I will take some more tomorrow but take in mind that it is about 4 weeks since those photos, maybe even longer.(:

From what can be told from those pics, looks OK. The flaring at the quarters, particularly on the insides hasn't been dealt with though. The right foot looks a little uneven, but may be just the angle of the pic & may also be a longstanding imbalance anyway.

Some people will always pick apart something. In my opinion, they look AMAZING. I wish my horses hooves looked like that!

Perfection doesnt exist. I always take note of the small issues each trim and want to see improvement the next if at all possible. Being observant to the small problems makes one aware and prevents small problems from becoming big ones. When you post photos to the hoof board, expect and embrace nit picky critique! :)

The point I think of people posting these type threads are to get some constructive criticism - different opinions on the specifics, in order to learn.

Ok...I realize perfection doesn't exist. I never said they look PERFECT. I was only stating my opinion on them. And I agreed with the OP that "I" think the hooves looked great! :)

Thank you Blondehorselover!

I have my farrier coming back out in probably three weeks if not sooner I will get photos of what they look like today and then what they look like afterwards. (:

From a farrier instructor's point of view, I can not assess the most important thing which is the balance of the trim and shoeing from that view .
What is needed are side views taken straight level with camera ON the ground and sole views with camera pointing straight perpendicular to the sole.

That said, the finish is rough, very coarse rasp marks all the way up the hoof wall. Not only is it unnecessary to rasp that high up the wall, when it is done so roughly it looks un-professional.

But rough finish is unimportant to the horse. What matters is hoof balance, and the style and placement of the shoe on the trimmed foot to allow for most efficient movement and hoof health.
