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.

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

That's awesome. I'm still on the hunt to find a good farrier for my mare. I do agree that its hard to find a GREAT farrier, and that's what I want.

Yea,it's sad because your horses hooves get trimmed and they either chip immeditely or they are all uneven!

Her hooves were steep..but so happy they won't be anymore.
