Okay, farrier came today. I was really nice to him, LOL. He saw the xrays, and I told him what the vet said. So I believe he trimmed her nicely and he is lowering the medials, but he said "slowly". He left her some medial heel .
He is really a nice guy once we get on the same wavelength. I wish I could show you this horse's founder xrays. A few months ago Cinnamon foundered badly. She didn't pierce the sole but was pretty close. From what I gather, he cut away v shape in the hoof wall where the bone wasn't attached anymore, and packed it. He also put wooden shoes on her and casted her.
If you could see those xrays now, you can't even tell anything was ever wrong!
So, I didn't take pics today because I'm usually afraid to look the first day. But I'll be going there tomorrow and see if I can get them then.
