One of the hardest things about being new to horses is voicing an opinion to someone you have hired as an expert. I'm sorry this has happened to you & your mare.

I've also seen people use those ropes that almost look like shackles on the horse's feet to keep them from running off (used properly).

Still. Farrier should have known better.

What you are talking about is different than what the farrier did. The farrier scotch hobbled the horse…badly from the sounds of it…and has nothing to do with hobbles that "keep a horse from running off".
