    Yes, but only in a different universe....the universe where I have really long legs and I'm 15 lbs lighter.

    Just call up your farrier and have a conversation.

    I always keep Magic Cushion on hand...if it happens again, Magic Cushion first, phone call second, and do make that phone call (and don't pull the shows). I third the WOW.

    "Daffodil" is what's printed on the bottle of stuff we put on cucumbers to make pickles.

    From my experience, if your farrier is a professional (key word) and is knowledgeable of the job, he/she really shouldn't have any issues with you asking about questions on the trim. A good farrier will have your horse's welfare as their first priority and would not your horse to be uncomfortable.

    Horses work 'out of' soft tissue problems. Sounds to me like you're flirting with a ligament, tendon or muscle problem. Just because it isn't as bad once she's warmed up doesn't mean there isn't something wrong....and the potential for something REALLY wrong. Changing angles drastically/suddenly is never a good idea.

    Call the farrier. He might be able to take her heels down just a tad to make her more comfortable. Long story short: she may be out of regular work until her next appointment; given some time to grow.
