Re: Lavinia - Request for mark-ups

That's great to hear!  I can see the improvement, and it makes sense to spread the changes out a bit because a big change in hoof mechanics can definitely make them sore.  Just don't get into the trap of maintaining without actually advancing and reaching the final trim goal, which can happen if there's too much time between trims or too little is removed each time.  Soreness a few days later could be from overdoing things on his new trim, or even abscesses mobilizing.  My only concern with the trim is it appears sole on the bottom of the hoof was rasped off, but perhaps Lavinia can comment on whether or not that was ok.
