Wow, that's wide. FYI, Cavallo Simple Boots are very round.. Mine are 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Just a bit too large for my up to 5" max W or L feet. Can you use them? Lol

Do give Amber a shout. Tell her AppyT sent ya, I met her on the equisearch forum.. lol

She does not remove sole or frog unless it's a real tatter etc., then only what wants to come off. Perhaps there is flaring that is making them too wide. If you check her site she has an online service which consists of email convo and viewing pics you can send her before you have her out if you wish. Take them asap since they were just trimmed as that will help her know what's going on best via pics.

Here is a shot of my fatround tries to be underrun filly's foot after her last 2 trims. Compare if you like.. I think these are both a left front.

I had tweaked her a bit a couple weeks before Amber came back as they were really runnin forward.. Just took another set of pics so Amber could tell me if I need to tweak and where. Lets see how this one stacks up in the run. Trim was 2 weeks ago.. both fores..

I got Dover's catalog yesterday and looks like boa boots there are same price as Old Mac's (they are much more expensive in my local store somehow). I heard boa are better than old mac's in all ways.

If you will decide on boots after talking to farrier etc., let me know the experience. :)

Thanks Kitten, I will let you know how it goes although it will probably be spring before I get them now. I just winterized the trailer and we will not be venturing far from home till then.

Glad you are having her come out. I hope you are happy with her work, I sure am..
Very Happy

She made it out and did a fine job. Didn't have to do much but the mares were a little crooked. She fit some easy boots on Sassafras and got them to fit fine She is bringing out some Cavello's next time so we can try them out. It was so nice to say "natural trim" and not have the farrier just get a funny look on their face. Hubby asked her to put us on her route so he must have liked her too and he is the final word. Thanks again for putting me in touch with her
