Re: Jana and Mikado Update still not getting better- now new trim


Oh - the ridges! No, I don't know of any reason to necessarily rasp them off. Farriers tend to remove them more as a cosmetic thing I think. Jana's farrier probably removed them in the process of removing flared hoof wall and the wedge.

I'm not sure I should be emailing and trying to explain things either right now. :) But as long as we eventually figure it out we're ok I think.

Take care,

Oh no, I meant the ridges! I thought the ridges are only rasped off for aesthetic purposes, I didn't know it's beneficial to rasp them off
