Now, Iím not completely well versed in hooves and Iíd like to learn. I know how to care for them and what a healthy hoof SHOULD look like, but Iím very unsure of what a healthy hoof should be SHAPED like. I look at pictures of hooves on here and even when I think they look good, someone posts that theyíre long in the toe or short in the heel or something like that.
Can anyone post a picture of what a well-shaped, healthy, ideal hoof should look like? Can you provide some reputable websites for me to research and educate myself? When you look at a hoof, what do YOU like to see? I have found a farrier who will trim my horse, but I would definitely like to educate myself on hooves so I donít have to rely only on what the farrier tells me.I want to learn enough that I can confidently say, "my horse's toes are far too long" and actually KNOW what I'm talking about to back that theory up.
