Keep running out of time for further comment, little time now...

My issue is not your maint. trimming bucky - I think it is quite reasonable. I dont for a minute want to make you think it's not. But you know(well, have conveyed as much) that you're a novice at all this, so i think you need to consider your limitations more fully. I am trying very hard to convey that this is not a put down, but a caution & maybe wake up - both to you & others.

My issue is you charging money and working on all sorts horses when you're still a 'beginner'. IMHO there is just so much more you should know before you go there. No, you won't find many horses with perfect feet, so if you recognize you're not up to 'rehab' that's one reason not to voluntarily go there. If the owners simply won't get anyone if you don't do it, or there are no others remotely nearby, it is one thing, but quite another imho to be trimming others horses, and for money, without a sound education/experience first, if there is any better alternative.

If there are alternatives, as it sounds like there are(you found a trimmer quite easily for this castel), I suggest asking some good ones if you can tag along, work under them, etc, and stick to your own horses until you're more experienced.

Quite possibly your education & experience is different to my perception. I only have your words & pics to guess at it, such as not understanding how to bevel toes, learning from vids rather than hands on, taking a very long time to trim, etc. And it did sound very much like you were taking these threads as 'how to' & didn't know much for yourself. Perhaps that's just your way of writing tho, and you might do some 'show & tell' threads to educate us better...

Here is how i learned to trim: I took a course on trimming at the local university. I started trimming my own horses and asked my farrier to check my work. My farrier dropped me as a client slightly after that, and retired completely a few months later.

I have found that because i am petite and will never have the muscle strength of a man, that i will never be able to trim much faster than my current speed. Certain things help- i use a hoof stand as much as possible, and try to trim one horse per week. But i am physically limited so i would never want to trim professionally. Just keeping my own horses trimmed regularly is enough work for me.

This is the link I followed as far as the toes go for trimming these two horses. @loosie if you could tell me what about the trim on cartel and chance I could've done better. Also, I thought dubbing was for instance a negative palamer angle which causes a bullnosed hoof, and dubbing would be the filing down the curve all the way up the Coronet band to make the hoof look completely straight.
Just trying to get on the same page, if I'm trying to get the toe back over time by relieving the pressure from the toe of the hoof, how is what I did bad?

No link. But my point is that unless you have absolutely no alternative you shouldn't be relying on 'remote' learning by Internet. Esp if trimming others horses. That said, go study lamenessprevention.org thoroughly. Think I've said that before...

Both pics you posted are egs of a 'dubbed' toe. The first is very likely negative palmer - bullnosed. That's nothing to do with dubbing. The second is of a straight wall. Neither has been rasped high up the wall, let alone remotely near the coronary border.
