Some seen the pictures of how bad my horse's hoofs gotten, that the farrier hadn't been really trimming them at all. Well a new farrier came, and he was rather surprised when I said she'll really wasn't "due" as in the fact it had been only a few weeks since her last trim, he had thought I had let them go from at least three or four months
. He even started to say if I wanted him to do her feet it had to be a minimum of every eight weeks, when I told him.
But good and bad news. Good news her shoes came off, and once he cleaned up the frog, and her sole was shedding, plus a ton off the flares, they almost look like hooves are suppose too. The flares were bad enough though he couldn't get rid of them all the way, but a plan was made to get rid of them in a few more trims.
Bad news the hoofs have seriously messed up her hind legs, when it came to bending her legs up onto the stand you could see it hurt her to flex any way. So it was recommended easy exercises for the next few weeks, until she is feeling better. Her hoof wall is all flaky and the whole smelled so badly.
I'm post pictures a little later, once I find my camera again. I told him I had no idea what I was looking at when I look at a horses hoof, that I hadn't realized what the other farrier (he knew who it was because when he asked who I bought it from, he knew her as the farrier too) was doing. He said I was obviously observant so it was a good place to start learning, it made me feel a little better, that there is hope in improvement.
