    I think the farrier did a nice job! Looks like on the left side of the bar/frog area more could come off. The toe could come back a little more and rolling it will help with that.

    I do Biscuit and Sarge's feet but am certainly no expert but go slow - do a little at a time which will help with her training to stand still. Better to take it off slow and get it right!!

So, I am left wondering if it is just b/c he is new to me that I don't feel entirely "warm and fuzzy", or is it b/c I know just enough to be dangerous and critical. That's why I wanted other opinions. My old farrier had a degree in equine podiatry, and each of my horse's needs were always well explained, and made perfect sense. She did them for years and they were always completely sound. In fact, she is the one that encouraged me to learn to trim on my own.

    There is always something you could've done differently on any foot. That what makes you better as a farrier/horseman. Most of the time with young horses it is better just to get done before there time limit is up . Look at it this way your horse is better now than it was before .
