So my mare was in the process of getting corrective trimming by our farrier to help get her frogs centered. But he had a heart attack and we had to use another farrier. I had to work when he came out so my sister was there, and she told me when she explained what our usual farrier was doing, the new farrier said he'd never heard of corrective trimming for that. But he trimmed her anyways. Now to look at her, her hooves look even, but if you pick them up you can see that her frogs are off to one side. Which is how she was getting trimmed before by the farriers before we found the one we like (heart attack), they had just been trimming her to "look good" not work good.
Now we find out that our gelding that he trimmed is now lame on all four feet due to being trimmed extremely short (ThePaintGirl is my sister). We have some padding on his feet for now. Our farrier is coming out tomorrow.
Anyways, my question is: does anyone have info on uneven frogs, as I've never encountered this before? And also, does anyone know about corrective shoeing? To help with her balance. I don't want to rush this, and I will give her lighter work or time off if that's what she needs. But I'm trying to learn all the options, as she is my competition horse.
(I'll try to get pictures if you guys want them, I just don't have any right now)
