You must have a very good farrier. Was she a good girl while he was doing work on her? Also how did you find out about her?

Here is the video of her walking right after.

If you click the link up there is the first thread - it tells her story.

He is great, our farrier, Rick Legg from Ohio.

Considering the pain I know it caused her - she was VERY good!

Please tell your farrier that he is officially my hero. And I'm sure he's hers, too.

Oh my gosh, such an improvement already, your farrier's got great hands and god bless your little mare <3 I'm sure she's super thankful. Have you gotten an xrays done of those feet to see if she's developed any bone issues from such poor foot care?

He said we'd need them before her next trim - and he fully expects issues.

Yes, she is very sore - but I expected her to be.
