Hah, okay, yeah, that's what was bothering me too. I think most of her toe could get the axe on the front, (I know nothing about feet but using my reasoning skills I'm assuming that...) but her front cannon bones seemed a little funky too- the way they come down out of her knee. Do you think that's because of her desperate need for a new farrier? Or am I just seeing things.
Sorry, didn't see your post lovemyponies...
I know that when my mare didn't get her feet done for four months and she had front shoes, (she was at a sale barn, but that's another story...hmph...) her feet grew out with the shoes in a similar way like this pony's and were like... caverns. Seriously, when I picked them out for the farrier when she was finally getting done, her feet were so grown over they were like caves on the inside. So I'm thinking that if the pony's foot was properly cut, then maybe the shoe would be a little farther back and her cannon bones wouldn't be so bent to compensate? And I'm pretty sure her pasterns are at about 45 degree angles so I don't think that's part of the problem... someone help me out here please!
