    Can we just take a second to appreciate the difference here? 6 months of good nutrition, a fantastic hoof supplement and wizard of a farrier.

    They really don't look that much different.

    They are at tiny bit better but not anywhere where they SHOULD be for 6 months later. I'd be finding a new farrier.

    I'd like to see solar and side views taken with horse squared up. I wonder how tall the heels are

    Ah, no.

    If you told me this was after one, maybe two trims, bravo.

    His feet were in such bad shape. :eek: Looking better. You can't make it grow faster so I hope in the next trim you are closer to ideal. Looks like he could have taken more off this time.

    Has he/she talked to you about what they're doing and why?

    As per the vets orders. Because of how extreme his leg angles were. She sidnt want us to change it too drastically, but instead go a little at a time.

    Yes, I’d say slow and steady is good if he’s your jumper prospect. I’m glad he has a home that cares now!

    First thing I did was have the vet and farrier out at the same time so we could get a game plan together. Not only that but his feet grow EXTREMELY slowly even with the hoof supplement. And He was pretty much walking completely on his soles, with no hoof wall to help cushion, which is super fun to try and correct

    Maybe I missed a previous post on this horse, but has he had x-rays done to see how much rotation he's had?
