question for haflinger owners
I recently acquired a haflinger filly. Her feet were horrible x 2. Among other things, the bars had laid over the sole and grown toward the outside wall. I immediately had them trimmed. That was about a month ago. I have been monitoring her feet ever since, and it will take more than one trim to get them on the road to "perfect". But, I have noticed the bars seem to have a natural tendency to do this (lay way over) as they grow - and they seem to grow at an unusually fast rate.
So, my question to haffie owners, do any of you observe this "tendency" (bars lay over) in your haffie's feet, too? I have never seen anything like it (I have always had QH's before, and now also have an appyX). I just wanted to eliminate the possibility that it is something common to the breed.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
