Re: Question about hoof growth
I would agree with that completely. In my opinions bars are often over trimmed anyway. Unless they are grossly laid over, in which case they might affect the horse negatively, I think bars are there for a reason. I actually believe they provide traction for the bottom of the hoof.
You trimmer seems to be doing all the right things :-)
