I'm no expert on hooves myself, but they do look a bit small, & like she's standing on her toes...upright. Maybe you should switch farriers?

I'v not had a farrier out as of yet to trim her. When I got her I was told she had just had a trim which was in November. So I am getting one out the first week or two of Jan. She has no problems running and kicking up her heels. So I'm pretty sure that I have been reading to much about hoof problems and have gotten worried over nothing. Her movement is lovely and appears natural.

I am slowly switching her feed to something more appropriate for her age and she already seem to have more energy. This is my first horse in quite some time & I think I am overly worried that I'm not going to do something right.
