    Saddlebag, I have had a few consults with different farriers. I am scared now of who to choose because the woman I used before came recommended, and seemed like she did a good job. I didn't understand how much her digging at his bars affected him, and the subtle imbalances (none of my consults, nor the vet, could tell any imbalances from looking. They can only tell from xrays)
