I try to keep around 15 horses trimmed with taking into acount their conformation and special issues.
One of the latest biggies is a thoroughbred that winters with me came back from the track with the nastiest feet. the trainer/ farrier let his heels become very under run, and the wall started to seperate inside itself with fisher that it took about five trims to see them start to go. ( have never seen this before and it is not in any of my farrier books.)
I could not find very much in my books on the under run heels. I looked at a forum with a discussion on it but it was an agument with no help.
So I decided to fallow my own corse and trimmed him taking the elongated heel back and trying to reastablish a beter base of support . As well as trying to rebalance the horses foot. I have using some of the barefoot trimming techneques to help with the rebalancing and has worked somewhat. Instead of trimming it would be better to say maybe rasping some every week to gradualy reshape the hoof.
Do you have any sujestions that can help or can you sujest any books that might bring me a better understanding on this.
