Ah that makes more sense! It does sound like it could be too short, if that's the case bump him back a couple of weeks.

Boots shouldn't stay on ALL the time but I leave the lesson horses boots on all day too much wear and tear on me and the boots to put them on and off 3 times ( considering this is 7 horses). Definitely leave them on the whole ride!

We had one taken back too far a couple months ago and he did have boots 24/7 for 3 weeks he was tender in the paddock too, bear in mind this is a horse who goes DEAD LAME from a stone bruise!

I'd give the farrier a call and explain the situation. See if she thinks you should bump her back or add shoes.

Ok Prinella..THANK YOU..finally someone understands what I was trying to explain. I looked and she is scheduled for 2 weeks. If I remember to take the camara tomorrow I do want to take pic's, it is looking like the outside wall is longer than the sole, maybe by a quarter of an inch so its almost a dish like appearance. I need to pay more attention to what the hooves are supposed to look like.

Its not just this thread. Its been a running theme for a long while now. Im over it. Don't want to read it. Don't want to hash it out back and forth forever. I can't blame Loosie for returning fire sometimes. Not one bit.

I stay away from other forums where "Its MY way or the highway" You can't learn much in that kind of environment unless you want to just learn "the one way". I also have no interest in being made feel like a fool because I have success with alternative methods or ideas. There's one forum in particular I stay FAR away from even tho Id like to read and ask more due to this kind of attitude. I think forum is a good place when the attitude is kept at bay. Lots of educated learning here from both sides of the hoof. I like that.

Anyhow, back to the OP...Interested to see pictures of a fresh trim.

I think we all did pretty well, considering the information we were given Not knocking you in the least - it can be hard to know what's relevant, what's not - but erring on the side of too much info's probably safest to get you the most useful replies.

Re boots & having them on all the time, it's about horses living in them mostly - they're not generally advisable for that. 'high profile' ones such as Old Macs also have more potential for rubbing the longer they're on, so they're not advised to be used for more than about(don't quote me) 20km/week or ride.

I'll wait for the pics, but sounds like she could possibly be overdue, or at least due for a trim now, if the walls are dished & 1/4" longer than the sole.
'Ideal' wall length for any horse is also subject to the environment IMO. While I'm not in the least trying to make any excuses for possible farrier error, I do think that 'sub clinical' or 'low grade' laminitis is something that tends to cause horses to be more sensitive post-trim, particularly when hooves are left to overgrow between trims. It frequently goes unnoticed.
