There is a guy who does come out (He did the yearlings last year a couple times) periodically just to see the other horses, and he says everyone looks great...he's done farrier work longer than I've been alive, and I've seen some of his horses, so I do trust his judgement. I should clarify, though, He works with other staff in the school I work at, so that's the main reason he comes out. He would trim if he felt the need too, as his services are voluntary, not paid; we are a non profit school.
He doesn't think she needs shoes to correct the over reaching, because he saw the shape of her feet when I first got her, and he's seen them as of current, and he said that she should get better in another couple of months; I'm still working at getting rid of some of the flaring, and toe length.
