Thanks for all the replies. :)
@ horselover1: given the condition of the feet before the farrier came, i think he did a good job. I will give him a few more visits before i start nit-picking too closely. Getting feet back into shape takes more than 1 trim, usually. :)
@ loosie: they are looking much better, and i will try for better pics when i have someone here to hold the horse for me. Thanks for your input :)
@ smrobs: i will post the link to the video i did before
the farrier came. I am also going to take one here in a bit and compare. He is not majorly off, and i notice it at a walk more than any other gait. If i am still noticing it when i go to get him gelded i will have the vet check it out then. :)
@ EquineGirl: i do appreciate your concern. He came to my place a week ago sunday (nov 1st) and he was worse than he is now. He has gained some weight already, but i do not expect or want him to gain it overnight. Slow and steady is best, imo. Also, he is a 2yo and is still growing.
He was wormed when he arrived, and he has a vet appt scheduled in a few wks (routine checkup, coggins, and he will be gelded). He now has 24/7 access to my pastures (@ 5 acres). Also he is being fed a RB, and some feed - in addition to hay - 3x a day. Please do not assume i do not know how to care for a horse, or am neglecting him.
@ DHW & greentree - thx :) can't wait till he is looking like he should.
Off to feed my horsie, and get a video.......
Oh, here is the one i took before
the farrier. I had the video camera sitting on my mailbox.....not the best video in the world.
