    No, I have had her trimmed 3 times while being barefoot, each 7 weeks apart. Sorry, my wording was kinda weird!
    She is doing much better now and I was able to ride her yesterday. The farrier has still not called me back so I will be calling him again today.
    I'm pretty sure he didn't trim the sole. What I did notice is that in her back feet the back part of the frog is longer than the hoof, meaning it hits the ground before the rest of the hoof. Could this be a major problem?

    EDIT: I just went back and read my original post and I did type that really wrong! Sorry, I was exhausted when I posted that.
