Hello! I had a talk with my farrier yesterday when he came out to look at a new arrivals feet and asked him why my mare's hooves are so upright. He said it is because she is an Arabian and that it the way she is. She has never been lame. I ride her 3 times a week with some light jumping and recently went on a 12 mile trail ride, so she gets worked pretty well. I am just worried that this isn't ok. Sorry, I don't think I have a picture, but can get one and post it later. Should I try to find a new farrier and get a second opnion? Is it just an Arabian thing? I don't know really how to find another farrier. We live in a small town and there is only 1 horse vet willing to come out and all the farms around use this farrier. Thanks!!!
Oh - she is barefoot.
