I spoke with my current farrier when I first got my stallion. Jax had severely under-run hooves, long toes, bullnosed hooves, etc... After a few trims, he was looking a lot better, but the under-run heels weren't being addressed and the toes were still long.
My farrier is great at shoeing my mare, but even with my gelding (who I keep barefoot) I've noticed that his hooves just seem to look a bit off when he gets new trim... but with my mare, her hooves always look great after a trim (though she gets shoes, too)...
My horses are overdue at the moment for a trim due to me not having the money right now, but I know enough to keep the hooves moderately where they need to be until I can get a farrier out again...
