I still say call the guy up and let him know.

Is this the first time you have used him? Did you get any credentials?

I'm not sure if I would give him a chance to make good or not. That's up to you, maybe his previous trim kicked him in the groin so he wasn't concentraiting on his work when he did Gunther

It never hurts to let them know you aren't satisfied. He may have an explanation about what went on. Maybe it was the horse or something else.

Maybe your friends were wrong and he doesn't have clue one about trimming. Either way, you should sure tell your friends about their recommendation.

I called him but got his voice mail so I left a message. Hopefully he will get back to me soon. The sad thing is I have to give him another chance even if I like it or not. It's either I let Gunther stand and move with pain or I get the farrier out here so he can atleast make it "decent" until I can find a new one, trust me I'm looking!

I'm not sure what pain he would be in. They aren't too short and as far as length they really aren't long enough to cause movement problems. The chips aren't going to hurt him.

The chips aren't going to affect him or his movement, but the flare in the wall is going to make chipping worse.
Make sure that they don't become too upright ( this can cause a rotation in the pedal bone if it's left - then it's goodbye horse )

You're horses right front looks to be way off balance and if not corrected will lead to all sorts of problems.

If I were you and getting a different farrier is really hard I would read as much as possible ( pete rammey I think but not sure ) and then you can talk to your farrier whilst he is trimming his feet or ( if the farrier is uncooperative ) better still learn how to barefoot trim yourself.

One thing to not do is leave them as they are.

The toe hasn't been rolled - this will make the foot grow more upright as the horse walks on it's heels more - which will make the toe grow out even more

Out of balance - the line from the middle of the fetlock through the middle of the coronary band should continue through the middle of the foot and should be at right angles to the floor - if not corrected this will cause compression between the short & long pasterns on the inside and also strain the fetlock joint

sorry but I think that is a terrible trim, I would call him back out.As far as a farrier showing up drunk, I would have told him to leave being drunk you aint working on my horses.I'm not no expert on this but it looks like he didnt even rasp them down.I will def call him back out.
