He wasn't just overdue; his toes are about a mile too long, which is a separate issue.

OK. Best of luck to you and your horse.

No, I'm not trying to be rude. I really want to know what you're saying.

If you look at all your pictures, compare the angle of his front pasterns to the angle of his rear pasterns, and then look at the length of toe on the front hooves (particularly in that second photo) compared to the rear hooves. That is why I am seeing an issue beyond just being due for a trim.

He needs to have his toe brought back. I apologize, but I can't get a good enough look at his heels to see if they are underrun, though that frequently goes along with a too-long toe.

Maybe he was just coming off a bad trim and then overdue, but I don't think so. You can't really see his hooves well in the other photos, but his angles look similarly mismatched, so I am guessing the issue is there in those photos as well.

Yes, he does have mismatched feet. And low heels. We're working on it.
Sorry if I seemed rude earlier. I wasn't meaning to be. Thanks for your help.

Not a problem. Good luck with his feet.

EDIT: Sorry to drag that so far off topic. I don't have any advice to offer on your actual question.
