Mine get trimmed when I think they need it. That usually is at about 10-12 weeks for the Appy. The other 2 could go perhaps a month longer, but it is easier to get them all trimmed at once. The last trip, the farrier only used a file & cleaned the sole on the mustang, and the same on 3 of my mare's feet.
Count me in as one of those who thinks 1/4" of trim is a mild trim...that is about what was taken off the Appy on the last visit. Worth doing, but hardly waiting too long.
