Gidget's crooked leg is no more

So the farrier came out. The one the vet apporved of and Piaffe uses him too! Anyways I have been struggling to find a farrier that does a good job..not just a decent job and I finally found him!

He told me Gidget's leg is fixable and shouldn't need shoes Also her feet were not balanced and they were at a 60 degree angle The last lady ruined my horses feet.He cut off a lot of heel and made she they were level and eve with all four hooves. He took great care and I checked them out and made sure they were good...She was suprisingly not tender in the hooves from her trim either....

I love my new farrier!
We are officially keeping him and are in his appt. book.

That's great news! Good for you for going out of your way to help your horse. He sounds like a great farrier.

Yes, once you get a great farrier ...Keep them! They are so hard to come by these days

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.
