    Ummm no because according to others, mine would be considered unhealthy.

    Believe what? As usual you're not making any sense.

    I'm sorry, I can't post pics of healthy heels because of farriers who've screwed my horses up. My horses are in the process of being rehabbed to grow healthy heel in place of crushed underrun heel.

    Here is mine. Lame horse put on the mats and "ONE" trim. Trim was to bring heels back as far as I could in "ONE" trimming w/o being detrimental.

    JD, I don't care what you believe.

    It takes time to correct underrun heels, and I'm not trimming my horses' feet anyway.

    You can post some pics of the feet that you have someone else trim for you!

    My belief is "that you do what you can do now; then start all over again one step ahead"

    Again refer to barefoot no more to see my view. Think we should put a damper on hacks and make them all go to vet school. Education the best theory here.

    Want someone with some expertise to analyze my fellow. Don't care what the cost. If feet are the issue then let them have at it. If they can do a PPE than I think I trust them enough to tell me a hack when there is one. If the vet tells you that the farrier or barefoot trimmer is doing an injustice, why should you believe them.

    Hmmmm

    Degrees do speak volumes and they are what counts when selling aLso.
