It will probably take a few trims to get him completely back to 'normal'. His last trim (before this one) was on the 3rd of January, though my farrier was quite surprised that there wasn't a whole lot of growth to get rid of. I usually don't take so long between trims, but due to medical issues, a car wreck, and illness earlier this year that kept me out of work, then several dental visits (for me) that cost a bundle of money, I had to keep putting a farrier visit off because I didn't have the money for it.
My farrier was also supposed to have come out about three weeks ago, but due to things coming up on his side of the fence, he had to cancel and reschedule twice.
I am keeping it clean and like I already said, I plan on treating it with CleanTrax the first day the rain is gone. Dakota is quite comfortable, it seems, and isn't limping or stepping hesitantly on that hoof at all, so, overall, I'm pretty pleased. :)
