Compared to how they were, I think they look great! It looks like the trims might be slightly off balance? Or it might just be the angle of the photo or where you horse was standing but over all it's looks pretty dang good! Good job, you've put a lot of hard work into and it looks like its finally paying off.

Do you have a picture from the top lookig down the heels?
I would like to see his heels a whole lot lower.
Wondered if someone would pick up on that. Yes, his hooves are flared, at least the lower half of them is. There is a groove that runs across his feet, a little below halfway down the hoof. Above the groove the laminae (I think that's right? Anyway, the fibres of his hoof) are really tight and compact, but below the groove they loosen and flare out. I think this is due to the fact that I moved to a different agistment a few months ago, so he is on better grazing now, and I started him on a hoof supplement. When his hooves grow out a few more centimeters the groove should disappear and all his hooves should be nice and tight.
