    Thanks. I'll occasionally use a hoof buffer if there is considerable wall damage but more often just a rasp and standard sanding block.

    My old farrier would say drafts for sure. After reading these posts, now I realize they all lean. Poor guy!

    Now, not all of them . John doesn't and neither does Bessie. Though Bess has a bad habit of just taking her foot away when she thinks it's time you were through with it. We're working on it and she's not malicious or impatient about it, it's just that she thinks holding her foot up for more than about 3 minutes at a time is far too long.

    Left him barefoot on the hinds...

    That's some verrry nice work Mark, I really appreciate a farrier that does not only great work, but a beautiful finish as well.

    I used to work at a Belgian draft horse farm and the owner did all the working mares himself because no farrier would come do them.
