A few months back I posted a critique of my horse's trim, done by a regular farrier. He went lame the day after, and many of you said his hooves didn't look great and that the trim was a bit...er, shoddy.
Anyways, he's just had his 3rd trim by a certified barefoot trimmer, she knows her stuff, this is her website below:
Bright Barefoot Equine | Professional Barefoot Hoof Trimmer
... and I wanted to know what you guys thought.
This is nearly 2 weeks after his last trim. He is trimmed every 4 weeks.
(His pastern looks skewy b/c he's not squared up, he was leaning)
I am aware he has some bruising in his heels, he's not sore and it certainly doesn't stop him wanting to tear around like a looney.
His soles are starting to crack and flake away, which I have been told is a good thing, as he is very flat-footed and this means he is developing some concavity.
If you want I can explain the groove halfway down his hooves, but i'll do it later. It's late and I can no longer be bothered typing, lol.
