, if you are absolutely sure the coache's farrier only shoes --- do NOT let that farrier put shoes on your horse. IMHO, I wouldn't even send Kodak over there:)
I have seen farrier's in my lifetime that can "slap a shoe on" faster than some farrier's can do a good barefoot trim. They don't give a flip about the horse --- just "talking the talk" and impressing people who don't know any better but think they do.
Agree with so many others there is quite a bit wrong with Kodak's trim and it's a sure bet much of Harley's issues are compounded by equally poor trimming.
I know for fact with my Rusty, who has a minor club hoof, that thrush issues never went away until my new farrier came on board. Not even when I was trimming him because my mind just does not get the physics of that club hoof and how to trim it:)
I understand the $$$$ reason for not getting x-rays in the near future. I have had to shell several thousand dollars for a whole bunch of unscheduled events this last year, and it appears I'm not done yet. My Joker could benefit from new x-Rays but it simply is not going to happen. I am retired and on a fixed income. DH makes pretty decent money but it's a long way from "we hit the stupid big lottery" money.
So I understand your situation:)
The best you can do for now is to have the equine podiatrist evaluate Kodak -- actually I think she should evaluate all three horses hooves, if you can swing writing that big of a check. The fact the woman is willing to cut her fee way back speaks well of her integrity and heart to want to help your horse and not simply wave her hand over the issue, then ask for a check:)
If you really like your current farrier and she is open to learning from a bigger professional than she is -- I would invite her to be present when the podiatrist visits so she can learn what she clearly does not know -- how to put a good trim on a horse:)
You would also be learning and therefore able to keep an eye on things, if you feel your current farrier slipping back into an old and wrong routine:)
The reason I take so many pictures of hooves and bodies is because I don't always "see" what I am looking at. Giving things a mental rest for a few days, then looking at those pictures often helps me see things more clearly:)
Best wishes in getting this resolved:)
