UpNorth, I - and I believe a lot here know how you feel, from first-hand experience! We have all come from a position of no knowledge, trusting 'experts', until there are issues, and we've learned - often been shocked by just how much we need to learn or the condition of our horse's feet - differently. And we're all in different stages of that 'journey'. The best any of us can do for our horses is with the best knowledge we have at the time, and an open mind to keep learning. So don't ever knock yourself if you find out later that you were wrong in something or other, just congratulate yourself for finding out better! And don't take anyone's word for stuff blindly, regardless the source, but use opinions & info for further consideration.
As to your horse, I don't
think her feet look terrible, but there are some significant things to fix, IMO, which I pointed out. And itquite possibly
could all be fixed easily with a few good trims... I understand how overwhelming it can be to be suddenly 'thrown' all these opinions! Just remember, your horse's feet aren't going to fall off, even if the shoes are.
Of course, the sooner you start addressing the probs the better, but they are not even likely to get significantly worse in the short term if nothing changes, so you have time to breath & learn, without having to feel like you're 'under the pump'. So on that note, with your farrier too, you might not even want to bring stuff up next visit, but just 'sleep on it' for a bit & learn more first.
Lack of good farriers seems to be a world-wide common thing, and why many of us have learned to do the job in the first place - I never had any intention of becoming a hoof care practitioner decades ago when I started learning all this! Whether you plan to do the job yourself, or keep using a farrier, I personally believe it's invaluable for people to learn how
to do it, if only for 'emergencies' or 'brush up' trims between farrier visits.
Re the "does not have pelvic "problems" (not sure where that came from" - Great that she doesn't! That was me suggested that, but pretty sure I said something like she could have
a pelvic problem that could be
the cause of her hind foot angles, particularly the right. That it's possible
. If I wasn't clear before, please pardon. Hope that's ironed it out.
Re to get xrays or not, IMO they're always interesting to have, and sometimes necessary. Purely based on those pics, I wouldn't personally worry about rads atm. *I am not saying you shouldn't get them though. Just that me, with this little bit of info here, can't see a burning need. I am including some diagrams, to give you a *rough* idea how to 'read' your horse's feet better, as to where internal structures are/should be. Hope it helps.
