Yeah, theres a specific reason that the farrier leaves a lot of toe, though I can't remember what it is- but they generally aren't that long. She's very due for a farrier and he's supposed to be coming on Tuesday afternoon. I can ask about it though!
She was a trained header (I don't know why...she's a ASB after all. But then again the old owner swore up and down that she was a QH, yet she's gaited.... >.>) when we bought her at five years old, and has been working stince she was long two year old. Not extremely hard though, but that doesn't mean its not artheritis.
I sprayed her down with fly spray this morning before riding her, and she almost completely stopped shifting around, except for occasionall lifting those front feet- so I'm thinking you guys were right. I'll keep looking for signs of swelling or lameness just in case though. Thanks so much! Im not sure why I didnt think of that before xD
