I feel like whenever I take pics of the underside of his back feet I can never hold the camera right so they look distorted :(

I contacted the other chiro I used to use with my other horse, haven't had a chance to actually talk to her yet though, phone tag...but I think I'm going to have her come out and get a hands on second opinion. She did great work with my other horse, I should of never tried someone different!!

There is a slight bullnose appearance to them, and can't tell depth from just straight-on sole pics (are collateral grooves deeper at heel or toe end, or pretty even?), but they don't look too bad. Not that that's anything remotely accurate...

Again, I am no body expert, but I cannot see anything good coming from putting wedges on those hinds. Yes, he is a hair sickle-hocked, but he is not camped way under or "slouching."

I think I'll have the other vet give me a second opinion too, but I'd much rather use boots then shoes. Sadly this may have to be something that waits till I move in a few months. With traffic and work I just cant get out there every day to care for his feet with boots on :( But once we move he'll be in my back yard :) But would still be nice to get a second opinion now and see if theres something I can do in the mean time.

My house goes on the market next Friday so I'll be COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS TO MOVE TO OUR NEW FARM!!

Also not a hoof expert but he looks to have enough heel height already so putting wedges under them could put strain on other parts of his leg or stifle, he's slightly sickle hocked but not awful
Not sure about his back - he might have some sacro-iliac trouble but his conformation is also fairly typical of a lot of horses with QH blood.
