- Okay, thank you. I have used him once and I think he is doing a good job, but in case he is not, thank you for the name of the one you use. The guy I had before was really bad and messed my mare's feet up. Are you anywhere near the River Valley Ranch? My trainer is there. She makes a trip out to see my horse, because I won't let her stay away from home for training. Your horse is beautiful.
I saw in a thread that you had, or were going to use Rick Russo the farrier. What did you think of him? I have used him one time and so far think I like his work but I really don't know that much. As much as I try to learn what is right and wrong on a hoof unless it is really obvious I cannot tell.
Thank you for your time.
I live in Lakeside and have a 19yr old Mare. I have had her a year now.
- Someone recently posted a thread on a percheron with a deep split in its hoof not unlike your mares - been like it for maybe 12 years, lots of ideas handed out to her but might be worthwhile telling what was done to your mare to assist 'healing' of the split - obviously cause may not be the same.

- Oldhorselady liked post by Clava On thread : Barefoot Performance HorsesI don't think Rockley is about being natural at all, it is about letting the hoof grow what it needs and providing a suitable environment to do so (be that plenty of work or movement on abrasive...Liked On: 03-02-2014, 10:35 AM
Posted On: 03-02-2014, 06:16 AMThe periople thing tends to be like that on some breeds, esp heavies. From what you can tell from those angles, looks reasonable. I'd keep those toes well bevelled & the second pic above, the right...Liked On: 03-01-2014, 12:19 AM

Posted On: 02-28-2014, 04:18 PMA white line doesn't grow in stretched. Diet only fixes new growth and the future. Trimming deals with the past. So, if there is a problem with new growth, yes, diet needs to be addresses. But, diet...Liked On: 02-27-2014, 09:31 PM

Posted On: 02-24-2014, 04:40 PMAgree with all above. I would be getting into those heels too. Exfoliating sole, I'd tend to leave what's in front of the frog. Depends what you see when trimmed. Dont think toe - a/p bal looks bad...Liked On: 02-27-2014, 09:27 PM

Posted On: 02-22-2014, 09:03 PMActually I now disagree with Pete on that. Bars become long and impacted and my feeling is if they are "growing back" faster than the wall growth, they are trying to let out extra length or are...Liked On: 02-27-2014, 09:24 PM

Posted On: 02-24-2014, 09:27 AMIf heels are underrun I do believe it's important to address this directly, not just with backing up long toes - tho I think this helps & is perhaps more important, depending on degree. When heels...Liked On: 02-19-2014, 08:17 AM
