After a few months of trimming, it became clear that my friend's chronic foundered horse was not being trimmed properly by her farrier, who was leaving an enormously long toe and very high heels. [That prevented her from recovering, although she had already been removed from the grass that was the primary cause of her problem.]
Is this trimming trivial? Certainly not. But it is quite do-able!
Yours, Barbara Sollner-Webb
