I'm definitely not saying that all traditional farriers do pasture trims like that, in fact I know they don't (my brother's Boy Scout leader is one I can think of off the top of my head). I was just giving an example of what can happen when someone only uses shoes to fix issues and when they don't understand the angles and such that are needed for a hoof to be healthy.
I think knowledge of both methods would be a very helpful thing for ChevyPrincess to have as a farrier and I was sharing that. I'm sorry you have a problem with me trying to help out a friend.
Sorry for going off topic, ChevyPrincess. =/
