Thank you! I was not looking for a critique, that's right, because HONEST to goodness his rear feet have never had an issue. His fronts, well, he has always been shoed in front, even from the program I rescued him from. I am glad to hear its not white line. Someone puts something in your head, and before you know it, you're on google looking at every image trying to compare.

Funny thing is, the farrier that did the trim, I LOVE. I moved my horse out of his territory and actually BEGGED him to come and look at his feet because we were having some issues. So the whole thing is bizarre. And it doesn't have anything to do with money, or paying
for a trim. I was honestly worried about him being to short since he was so recently trimmed up. But it looks like he will need another one!
