Looks like a really lazy job, imo.

Tianamalz,no it's a bonafide real farrier job. He does about 30 horses at my barn and I cannot find anything wrong with any of them . But then he comes to my horse, and says he needs to straighten her hooves to bring her legs back in.

Not only can I understand what he did, for 3 months I've been working on the inside jamming to begin with. Doesn't it look like he's making the wrong side higher?

It just looks messy, he didn't even clean up the rasp marks and left it all scraggly, I wouldn't be happy.

There's still an awful lot of flare on those feet that needs to be removed. I wouldn't be happy with that job on my horse.

Got a picture of the whole horse standing as square as possible, relaxed?

That kind of looks like something I'd do on my own horse when I know my back is about to go out. Thing is when I do it and it's my horse I can come back later or tomorrow when the back isn't so touchy.

That horse is full grown. There is no hope of correcting her legs. He should be balancing the hooves to be balanced with the way she's currently moving, not how she would move if she had perfect front legs.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
