Links work fine for me.
Fronts look okay, but the whole hoof could be brought down just a smidge more like the hinds (highest point of frog should be level with the foot). I personally would've taken a bit more sole out if he were mine, but not everyone does that, so I wouldn't worry about it.
While his toe angle matches his pastern, I personally would bring the toe back maybe a quarter inch (maybe) farther than what it is. It also looks like he left a bit of flare on the quarters, but I'm not positive from the pictures (and my eyes are bugging me tonight for some reason).
I like the back feet. Aside from a smidge more off the toes (imo), they look well balanced.
I wouldn't complain at all about the trim job. I can't remember if I saw before pictures, but I'd probably keep with this farrier if I didn't feel like doing my own (what I'm doing, because the one I found is CUTE! lol).
Also, I fully believe him taking more toe off the club would result in less tripping. I've seen a lot of "stacked up" feet in my western pa area as well..I wish I had the stamina to go trim as a job, but I just don't have enough time in a day or the start up money for a little trailer and the rest of my tools (I just trim mine early so I don't need to use nippers, unless I plan to have my very talented, cute farrier out :p ).
