Hoof pictures before & After

Here's picture from when old farrier was doing horse. First two pictures are of old farriers work,second two pictures are new farriers work,horse has magic cushion in soles of front feet now. Pictures were taken before magic cushion was put in soles. Both hoof pictures are of left front. Hoof boots weren't working wouldn't stay on kept coming off in the mud.

Farrier did as much as he dared first go so still some corrections to be made.

Kind of looks the same, except the heels are a bit higher in the first one. Heels are not back far enough in either picture.

I am not here to promote anythingNo, that's not true, I am here to promote everything equestrian and everyone enjoying horses!

I like to see the shoe supporting the heel a bit more.

I don't break horses, I FIX them!

Looks like the bars have been trimmed & heels may be a bit shorter. Can't say any more really from those pics.

Better angle on the second pic though -- got rid of some of the flare. It's going in the right direction anyway.

I'll get more pictures tomorrow the magic cushion came out sometime today. Horse was re shod trimmed just two weeks after old farrier did him. A lot of heel and toe was taken off.

Had pictures of old farriers work from last trim shoe job..must have deleted them. But his heels were way longer then what first pictures show which aren't most recent. Old farrier just pulled old shoes off and nailed on new set.

Never shaped shoes just filed foot to fit it. New guy put on 2 sizes bigger of shoes on fronts. Before this horse was in double otts. Not saying job is perfect but its a far cry from before. Pictures don't do new Farriers work justice. It's very hard to get good pictures at least for me.


He's not landing toe first I took a video and did slow motion he's landing heel first. I'm running out of farriers to try. This guy is by far best I've had, my horse's like him.

My horse's hated other farrier both tryed to kick him last time he was here may 24th, old farrier was doing 2 horse's shoes all 4 on both in 1 hour 10 minutes.


New guy took 2 1/2 hours. He shaped the shoes and actually trimmed the feet.

Still not super, but headed in the right direction. Keep posting as he's trimmed and I bet you'll see a huge difference in a few more trims. You should, anyway.

That being said, did he explain why the clinches are so high up the hoof wall? That's about as high as I've ever seen any, and they're not even or tight. While a lot of that is finishwork and not function, it does speak to attention to detail.

While not a 'be all and end all', this page does provide some good information on evaluating shoeing. https://animalscience.tamu.edu/wp-co...e-shoeing6.pdf

^Re clinches, I just gathered the job wasn't finished when she took the pic.
