    By the way my farrier knows how to handle horses, he doesnt give up. Its not my fualt that their last owners neglected them and half feed them so they could work with them. Or abused them so they would listen.
    You asked for, and have received, the advice needed to rectify this situation and yet seem determined only to defend why you can't do what must be done to fix this issue.
    Their past is their past - you are dealing with now. As you have seen, they have an issue with your farrier/men handling their feet - no amount of you and your mom working on it is going to fix that problem because, in your own words, they don't have any problem with that. You are not addressing the problem. Get over the pickiness - it is doing them no favors at this point.

    The past is the past. You can't control what happened in the past, but you can fix the results of it. Blaming and bring up the past for any little issues you have with your horses now is not productive. You have had your horses for long enough now that it is no longer the fault of what has happened in the past. It is now your (and your family's) fault for allowing your horses to get away with this dangerous behavior with the farrier (and elsewhere per your other posts). You need to step up and take responsibility and either work with the horses/train them to get through this or find someone who will. If you are not willing to do either of those two things you need to look into re-homing them with someone who will.

    Couldn't agree more - you are actually doing these horses a great DISservice by allowing their past to excuse the present. I have worked with troubled horses, I will do so again - once they arrive in my care and control we don't worry about the past, only the present. The past is much less of an obstacle to them than it is to you.

    This might be part of the problem. By not exposing the horse to different people, the farrier comes as a shocking reality, and the horse wants no part of it.

    I hate to say it, but if you're incapable of making these animals safe to be handled, you really have no business taking on abuse cases. It's not your farrier's job to train your horse no matter how good he is at handling horses.
