Yeah, I am just sick about it. I mean really sick. I knew there was something wrong. But everyone kept saying that he was doing a good job and that it takes a long time to fix bad feet.
I am thinking about getting rid of all three. The farrier for sure. The vet most definately and the trainer, as much as I liked her, I can no longer value her opinion if she let me continue to use this farrier and she speaks so highly of him.
I am so mad at myself for not realizing there was a huge problem or at least not going with my gut. Everything I read seemed to me, that her feet were not done right. I knew her gait had changed. I can't even imagine what kind of damage has now been done, that will take forever to fix, or at least till she feels better.
My BO recomended him too, and many people at the ranch use him as well and all speak so well of him and praise his work.
The only reason this other farrier was there was because there is a new boarder at the ranch.She is the one who had her farrier look at my horse when he was there doing her horses feet. I was trying to figure out if one of my horses hooves were warmer than the other at the time. Then his looking at my horse turned into a 4H lecture. He wanted to pull the shoes rite then and there but I didn't have the cash on me and I wasn't sure so I thought I would get some opinions.
I will find the money and call him today. My poor horse.
