My gelding got shod the other day. I unfortunately wasn’t there and couldn’t ask my farrier about the angles. Fronts with winter “popper” pads (to prevent snowballs) and studs, barefoot behind. Someone had mentioned on a previous thread that his feet might be an issue. I initially thought they were trimmed high inside and low outside, but I think that was just the camera angle. What do you guys think? And how would I address these concerns with my farrier?

One heel does seem higher than the other.
