What should I be expecting the farrier to do with her feet?

As y'all know I've been training my boyfriend's horse Brassus.

I talked to his dad last night, and mentioned he should probably be getting her feet done soon. He said ok, when you come out tomorrow (today) we will call someone and get an appointment made.

I'm not all that experienced about feet, I know very little. All I can tell about her feet are, she needs them shaped, and she needs her heels brought back under her. And in the back, the angle in the slope is TOO steep, it's suppose to match the pastern right?

So, what should he do tp fix the angle, and bring her heels back?

When I go out there later, I'll get pictures to help. How would I take good hoof critique photos?

Thanks everyone and have an amazing day! :)

In short, a good, well balanced trim is what it sounds like is needed, & regular care. Can't suggest any specifics without knowing any about the horse, except it sounds like hoof care has been neglected for some time or done badly previously? Depending on the degree of distortion, don't expect perfect looking feet after the first trim.

I think owner education re hoofcare is important. My signature links will give you somewhere to start, inc pic tips.
