I agree, John. I would do something similar if the situation called for it, but I would have rounded it all the way around the hoof. I am sure the horse was fine with it, but I am anal and would have made it look better. ;)There isn't really a natural breakover now with the points being there like they are... With a bare hoof they can wear down, but in the meantime that would still cause a distorted breakover if the horse "wanted" to break over on one side or the other...

I think many will now do what your farrier did, but often a little prettyer.
Great to find the right man for the job.
I have just started another johnthevet photo album - examples.
I thought you might like to see a really bad under-slung heel.
