I don't know much about conformation (although I'm starting to learn from this lovely forum) but she is absolutely adorable!

Feet update:

Not sure what to think. This farrier told hubby that basically, draft feet just "get that way". :(

^^^ Time for a new farrier!!! I still see massive flaring that does not appear to have been addressed among other things. Better photos taken in better light (sun to your back) with the camera resting on the ground are needed for a real hoof critique, but even from these I can see that the farrier did not do much of a job and the problems we are seeing will only continue to get worse with this farrier.

I agree. If only because he pretty much seemed to completely discount our concerns. Looks like he rasped the front part in a way I havent seen, like he was going for cosmetic....

Close up photos of the hooves would help a lot. The need to be in two views: of the soles staight on(camera perendicular to the middle of the sole) . And from the sides with camera ON the ground so the photo is taken perfectly level with the ground and exactly straight from the side.

That said from what little I can see here, two things are possible:
1) she is simply developing the flatter genetic draft foot or
2) she has a lot of flare that needs to be addressed, and excess flare can sometimes be from not trimming the HEELS enough, which drives the sides of the foot outward.
Or both.

So if you can post better pics of her hooves we can better evaluate where the issues are and I can advise on how to be best fix them.
