    Yet another, "what are your thoughts"

    Left front

    Left front side

    Left front hind

    Right front

    Right front side

    Right front hind

    Right front heel

    Trimmed 1 week ago. The right hoof has ALWAYS had a crack (some sort of deformity or defect?) Shoes are difficult to keep in that 1 foot also, when I do put shoes on, which is rarely. The heels had been starting to contract? On the right, so he's been trying to get them wider.

    Just looking for thoughts.

    Maybe one of these days, I'll remember how to get the pictures to just show up

    If you're in 'advanced' reply bit, scroll down to 'manage attachments' and you can attach your pics inline here. Bit awkward having to open them individually in photobucket & can't save them to draw on or anything.

    Better angle pics - from ground level in front, squarely side on - and sole shots would be handy to give you more, but it appears that they're good at the sides - the quarters look like they're probably bevelled enough in relation to the flares to allow them to grow out. Heels look long & run forward. Toes could be bevelled back a bit more I think. The crack in the toe probably has a bit of seedy in it which is why it hasn't grown out, so it would need resecting & treating as well as toe kept short enough.

    Yeah, I tried to get the best angles I could, but at the time I still had a cast on my foot so it was a little awkward.

    As for posting the pics, it must just be me because I'm pretty sure that's how I tried to attach them

    All in all it looks like an okay trim. It's hard to give good pointers on those pictures. But from what I can see in em it is my opinion that there could be a little bit more roll all around the hoof, especially in the flared areas. Keep up with a good roll and in time you will be pleased with the results.
