I just got him in the beginning of August and before then his feet weren't trimmed in forever. This is my farriers second round with him and I knew his toes were still too long. My farrier can have a tendency to keep too much toe on. I will remind him to take more off next time.
Also- his RF leg from knee down has been swollen since Friday. It is almost gone now and I don't think it could be related but maybe. He hasn't been lame though and no abnormal heat or tenderness. He's been fine. Posted via Mobile Device
