Hello again horse people.
So My first time trimming Clyde's feet the other day, and I had some unexpected problems. Yes, I've contacted my regular trimmer and yes I'll be bringing her out in a couple weeks to do a real job - in the meantime though, I need to learn!
So you can see in my pictures I've left the heel too high, the quarter walls too high, and did not bevel really. The bevel I just didn't have time, will go back and fix that asap. The problems I had were that, if I were to bring his wall down all the way around his hoof to the level of the sole, his frog would stick out like nuts at the heel. You can see in the sole shot that I accidentally rasped the frog a tad trying to bring the heels down. The heels are long, they need to come down, but to do it I'd need to slice n'dice his frog - and then there his darn periolple at the heel, which comes down all the way already so I'd be rasping into that as well. What the heck, guys? XD help me do a job that my trimmer won't face-palm over.
On the bright side, I actually managed to teach him in about 1/2 hour of training to stop pulling his **** leg away and lift his feet nice for once.
