    That's really weird! I swear I just copy and pasted into the hyperlink thing for the post. Maybe that is the problem?

    Got them to work after copying & pasting too, thanks apachie!

    Nice feet & nice trim IMO! I'd probably bevel toes a bit more, it would be interesting to see the horse they're attached to, esp re imbalances in fronts. Be interesting to see before pics & post next trim.

    I'll see about getting a couple of pictures to post on here of his whole body. There is a confirmation critique on the forum somewhere from last summer, but I haven't taken good pictures yet for this year.

    How do people do the before and after picture collages? Is there software or a website or something?

    I could only see the first one on a different computer. Is there contracted heels there? Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm trying to learn. How would you go about fixing contracted heels? Trimming the quarters?

    not sure what you mean by picture collages. I just 'attach' pics at the end - never worked out how to do it 'in line'. But if you want a good photo-editing prog for free, I love Serif PhotoPlus.

    Yes Kayella, they're a little contracted all round. Yes, good trimming, including 'scooping' the quarters if/as necessary will help, but the main factor in 'fixing' contracted/weak heels(assuming they can be fixed) is getting the horse using them comfortably.
