thank you for your input!!! I have had such a problem finding a farrier who will trim a mini. Oh Cash is coming up on 4m july 18. My first concern was that he would founder quickly like the broudmares he was with. This lady was just a crazy "breeder". I wish that I could have taken all the animals to better homes. So rasp his hooves every week until his heel is shorter? I completely understood whay you said by looking at Tiny's hoof. Thank you.
