    Yeah, the back left one bothers me the most. The gouge part that's on top of the leaf is actually filled with mud, that's not just the hoof wall.

    Check my last post I just added a picture.

    Like I said, give him a call. It looks like he didn't finishing trimming that back left hoof. It should be rounded out.

    If your weather has been extremely wet that may have a tiny bit to do with it but that looks like a bad trim to me. I'm no expert though, I'm just used to seeing my girls hooves and they never look like that right after a trim.
    Contact my farrier, she is a member here and may be able to give you some tips.
    Here is her web site: Amber Mohr's Barefoot Hoof Care She is pretty busy so may take awhile to get back to you but she is great at looking at a photo and knowing what needs to be done.

    You're not wrong - that is not a good trim at all.

    The feet look too upright for my liking, the hooves look like they are flaring in places, I can't see a roll on the toes at all and either the ground is uneven or the feet are also unbalanced.

    Any chance of some pics from underneath, also if you could pick the feet up and photo from the heels down so we can see the length of heel/balance

    a blind man would be pleased to see it, if that's any help

    Today is the first day the crappy weather started. I will send her the link to the photos, I hope she can help me out.

    Nutty, the funny thing is I stood Gunther on completely flat, leveled pavement. Yeah, it's raining pretty hard now I will try to get those pics asap.

    Not trying to offend, but it's an awful trim. One of the worst ones I've seen. I'd find a new farrier personally.

    You didn't offend me at all, I think the same thing!

    I used really bad farriers couple times myself: once because my neighbor uses him (trim looked just little better then that), other one did mine for while and every time it was worse and worse. So... I just looked for another person. Trimming around here is not cheap, so if one wants to keep clients he should do a decent job. Good luck if you'll decide to find a new one!
