He is no doubt the best farrier in the area. Has a great track record, shows up on time, calls when he can't come... perfect, right?
Well, I had him put shoes on Demi the last time he came out. Just regular 'ol front shoes. No special pads or anything.
The thing is, right off the bat, they were clicking like they were loose. And they WERE loose. They have gotten progressively worse to the point where I no longer feel comfortable jumping her until she gets them done again next week. He also left a bit of toe over the shoe, to the point that they almost looked overgrown right from the start.
So, how do I gently tell my farrier without offending him (if possible...) that I need her shoes tighter than they were before and that I need them ON the shoe, not over the shoe?
Ideas? I'm at a loss. And no, I am not switching farriers
