Thanks for all the info Loosie! I wish I would have taken photos right after they were trimmed so I could have had you guys critique the trim job. I will definitely look for a new farrier and have his feet done properly once I get back from the Dominican Republic. I leave very soon and I don't think I'll be able to find a new farrier (well, a good one) and have him come out within one days notice...I'll just let him take it easy and not work him at all until his feet are trimmed. Thanks again for your help, I really appreciate it!
He possibly had false sole that shed out. It happens. When it goes, it will appear that the wall is suddenly long because, well, it is once the false sole is gone :)
Thank you!! That sounds like what happened. It happend so suddenly I don't think his hoof wall could have grown that much over night...lol
I have friends with horses in the Barrington/Palatine area, I can ask them who they use. Though that might not help. I'm not sure what part of Chicago area you're in.
Im near Oswego/Plainfield. I'm going to ask around my barn and see who everyone is using. I'd love to hear who your friends use.
