Thank you again. I will post pics of the new trim when she is done. I am still waiting on a call from the new farrier. I will call him tonight if I still haven't heard back.
Should I try to remove the shoes myself?
Do you all think I should fire my trainer and my vet?
As for the farrier, do I just cancel my next appointment or actually fire him and explain why etc.?
I have the vet in this area that is active in the farrier certification training and such. I mean she is the farrier association supervising vet in this area for when they do their tests etc. Scary huh?
I really did everything I could to find a good one, but still failed miserable.
To have her feet done the new one mentioned doing wedges on the fronts and removing the rear shoes. Does this sound right?
He quoted me around $200+ to do this. He said she has hard feet to do but that he could help her and she would get some immediate relief. I guess farrier fees run different in different areas. Any amount of $ is worth her not being in pain.
Sorry, last question: The vet had me painting the underside of her hooves with betadine every night when it is raining. They seem to be getting dry. Should I discontinue that until her feet are done?
I hope he calls me back soon. I can't wait to get this all behind us.
Trinity: Does this diet sound okay to you? She was skinny when I got her but is far from that now.
