^^ sometimes it takes a long time to get toes to the right angle, so I wouldnt say hes doing a horrible job there. But I really dont like the fronts.
Its silly when farriers say they'll come back in a few weeks, hooves wont grow that much more in a week or so, most of the growing has already been done in the last 7 weeks. Its a waste of everyones time, waiting for them, then having to reschedule. I would understand if you horse was on a 4 weeks schedule. But I will not push my horse past 7 weeks, esp when they have shoes on.
Sometimes pads work, other times pads can cause more brusing, depending on how close the sole is to the hoof walls. If you horses foot is about flat, pads might create more pressure on the hooves. My made got abcesses/bruises from them.
