I didn't know Joe's
trim wasn't ideal until I posted pictures, asked
what a "quarter" was (and
a flare and a thousand other things) and read
other websites, books, went
to a clinic, etc. It's hard to be a good
judge if you're ignorant!
ahhh - but now this is just the WHOLE point and where we
should be. Plus, it's in keeping with Nancy's redirection of this
Educating ourselves so we become a part of the solution
for the horse! Learning the hoof isn't rocket science but it
sure isn't an overnight process either! Together with a
willing farrier/trimmer everyone needs to be contributing to the success
of hoof recovery!
So, I'll add that to the *Interview Trimmer/Farrier
- How open minded and willing are you to work with me and
also to help educate me on my horse's hoof, short term and long
- Would you be willing to coach me as I learn to pick up a
rasp in between visits?
