Phew! You scared the crap out of me! I went up to the barn and looked at his feet for a good 20 minutes trying to find what was wrong with them. I want so badly to do what's right for this horse. I'd hate to know I did anything bad to him, intentional or not.

I took a few pics of side views to show the slight bevel in the foot. Not a big mustang roll on there, but enough to keep the wall from touching the ground first.

I posted another sole view. If I'm looking at it correctly, the line around the toe area is tighter than along the sides. Is that accurate? Is it just a matter of rasping back to the white line in those areas on the next trim to help tighten things up?

Lastly, for the frogs, are those supposed to eventually just look dead flat across? While we are having a very mild winter so far, I'm assuming the ground will freeze someday and maybe that will help toughen things up?

Thanks for your input guys. I'm learning a lot.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
