Sometimes, decent takes a bit of work. This current farrier keeps her a nice angle, is always easy to reach and at the barn once a week. But even with the xrays, he left the medials high. Grrr! So I took my trusty rasp and shaved some off a few days ago. Today I shaved a bit more. If that's what I have to do, so be it. If he thinks I'm stupid enough not to notice, then I have no guilt fixing what he leaves.
I think farriers at a barn becomes a kind of political issue. We have one who does most of the horses. I don't know who others have, but I see people all the time switch to this farrier at the barn because the others are unreliable. Or don't want to come for 1 horse.
