    I usually suggest a 4 week trim cycle, no longer than 6 at the most. It's just so much easier to keep up on them rather than fix, flare, fix, flare, fix, flare, etc.

    The quarters are too long and 'jamming' up. Look at the coronet above the wave, it's the same shape. It should be straight from the front to the rear at a consistent slope.

    Thanks G, I see what you're saying now. There hasn't been any talk, that I'm aware of, of getting rid of the Scar Rule. I don't care if they are ever able to show their horses, personally.
