    I gotta agree though that under slung heels, and angles aren't going to be fixed in one trim. It may take several trims depending on how bad they are, the horse, and how often they are being trimmed.
    Will get pics tomorrow its dark out now. Farrier will come every 5 weeks if I want.
    Iam willing to do what it takes to fix issues.

    Never heard that one before, but perhaps you misunderstood & he was talking about shoulder/pastern/toe angles?

    He said he was matching the heel angel with shoulder angel. I even questioned him and that's what he saids. So that's why iam wondering if I should continue to us him.

    Ill get pics posted in am. He did a better trim job then last farrier but that's not to hard to do. Pics will be of my daughters horses feet iam wondering if he's a bit club footed.will get pics of my horses fronts he's a bit sore footed in front.but that soreness comes and goes.

    If you questioned him about it - which I would advise for starters, what did he say about why he believes this? If you knew what principles he was following, that would be a start, because perhaps in this particular case he has good reason.

    I asked his reply was this is how it should be. I guess I should of asked more questions but felt he wasn't liking my asking to begin with. When I asked him about my other horses feet if they should be done.

    He said they look good enough I said I think they could be trimmed no he didn't want to. His loss I was willing to pay another 30 dollar.

    Was first time he was ever here I felt a bit uncomfortable asking any more questions. He was highly recomended by my vet.
    I just want a farrier that's good and doesn't seem put off by my questions.

    I am far from an expert, but I always thought the hoof angled with the pastern

    The hoof does angle with the pastern..there's no way you can angle a heel with a shoulder because the horse would (giving a visual) be walking on it's tip-toes.

    I'm going to guess that either you misunderstood what he was saying, or he messed up and said either shoulder instead of pastern or heel instead of toe (in the latter case, that's usually wrong as well..)
