    Do any here feel the feet are the cause of the crooked body?

    Don't both need correcting?

    Doesn't he need some slower rehab work?

    Or maybe retirement?

    DOes he have to be used till he breaks?

    Oh my. Dramatic much? This thread is about his feet. You don't know what his work load is now or has been for the past few months. You don't know he's not having body work done. No one has said that the body and feet are independent of one another or that one is responsible for the other. Why do some people just assume that if it's not their horse, it's in the wrong hands?
    The horse needs a new farrier. He has soundness issues that require longterm management. Many, MANY horses do. They are being managed and he is very much loved and appreciated. And, did I mention that he needs a new farrier? He is NOT the "little matchstick horse" that's going to be used and abused and disposed of when he "breaks". Sheesh! Lighten up.

    Lordy - My apologies.

    Not the first time I have been too peppery with my questions. Not trying to imply anything other than I might have skimmed the posts and got the impression you could not convince the owner to change farriers. Hence the questions as to rehab, retirement or why the need to keep showing. Not sure how you got the impression the horse was in the wrong hands - apology for that as well.

    The body pics were something else - like you said.

    I agree - many many many horses have similar problems. I have "dos" crooked horses in my care. The vets and farriers and trainers I use for them do each express the same conundrum - which ever was first matters not - cause they will each continuously affect the other (crooked body - crooked feet).

    So I apologize for the peppery questions - And hopefully this post did not add salt.

    It is a very interesting presentation for the board.

    JB, you have just experienced, yet again, TSS from the dilettantes in the peanut gallery. LOL!

    Rick - Crazy funny to me that you asked for an apology on this thread. I am well aware that you have no use for civility. And yet you clamored for an apology on this thread? Toooo funny.

    And here you are whipping up folks to join in another of your mock fests. Go ahead. Parse out another of your leotard clad online thread battles. I am sure people will find it just one more classic to add to your list of Message Board accomplishments. Beat up the pigeons, listen to the doves cry. Makes you feel important I am sure.

    Time for you to post some pictures of all this good work you do. Maybe some pictures in focus. That would be nice.

    Damn straight, because its warranted.

    Au contraire' mon reading comprehension impaired cherie. However, you do deserve kudos for penning yet another logical fallacy. So, Kudos for that...
    And yet you clamored for an apology on this thread?
    As is, in context, appropriate.
    Toooo funny.
    Actually, its too sad for the individual concerned as well as for you.

    Like I care....
    Beat up the pigeons, listen to the doves cry.
    As noted, I no longer suffer, in silence or otherwise, fools and their foolishness or stupidity. Which is why I even bothered with the likes of you. But now I find that the juice just ain't worth the squeeze.
    Makes you feel important I am sure.
    Wherever it was that you purchased your Tarot cards, Ouija Board, Crystal Ball, etc., I suggest you return them for a full refund as they are not working for you. Oh, and you might want to consider going up a size in Big Girl Panties 'cause the ones you now wear seem to be a bit too tight/small for you.
    Time for you to post some pictures of all this good work you do. Maybe some pictures in focus. That would be nice.
    Too easy. LOL! You are yet again, trumped.

    Someone still needs needs a camera that can focus and why the crop on the pictures? You trying to say the horse was standing square in the back shot? Would be good for the student (you )to present this one to the master (Smitty). No?

    The photos were not cropped. They were taken with the camera in my phone. But don't let that stop you from putting your ignorance on display. Take it or leave it. Either way, no me importa.
    You trying to say the horse was standing square in the back shot?
    Nope, are you?

    No, because he's not my master though I do admit he forges pretty shoes. Is that why you, who have never been physically in the presence of either of us, thinks he's a master? Or is it because you have such extensive knowledge and skill in the forge, at the anvil and under the horse? Methinks its none of the afore mentioned things, rather, its because you are but another dilettante(because you pass "The Duck test") both with the horse, and in your knowledge of the camera.

    And, in case you missed it, please read my signature, below.

    When you gonna finally realize that as a mind reader, your ability is non-existent.

    Did you ever figure out which hand fills up faster, the one you wish in or the one you piss in?

    By the way, Pal-o, I've been considering hurly's demand that I apologize to you. She's right, I do owe you an apology. So, Pal-O, I apologize for being too nice to you and for lowering myself to the level necessary to converse with you. I promise to do better from now on. I will ratchet up my contempt and disdain to a level worthy of a dilettante nee person of your ilk.

    Hey Hurly, are ya' happy now? lol

    Hmm, you didn't address my comment. Guess I was right.

    I really don't care what you do. I think it's funny the amount of time you spend quoting and finding links and looking up big words in your thesaurus all in the name of insulting someone. You must have a very boring and lonely life indeed. Don't feel too bad when I tell you your efforts are wasted. The longer the post from you, the less likely I am to read it. I hope you quote this word for word. Have a nice day.

    Actually, I did address your comment. But you have to have more than a few operating brain cells in order to understand that.
    I really don't care what you do.
    Your continual nattering shows otherwise.

    There you go again, using logical fallacies and laying bare your soft underbelly of ignorance.
    You must have a very boring and lonely life indeed.
    Again with the logical fallacies... You're on quite a roll.....lol!

    The evidence indicates otherwise. Is there any other way to correctly quote something? Thanks, I always do.

    I agree pal-o-mino. A picture is worth 1000 words. Well, to anyone that knows the measure of worth. And though Rick is verbose, he sure could use a little help on the picture excuse wording - I mean him being a greatly admired and sought after teacher and all.

    Now pal-o-mino, though I think my intent was obvious, I want to clarify why I originally asked that he give you an apology. You of course deserved the apology. Had he given it, well he would have done himself some good and saved a little face and maybe developed some of the grace he tries on occasion to emulate. But it seems he prefers to don his wooley robes, wave his little flashlight and be stuck for all eternity pissing a puddle at his feet. Oh well.

    But though he would like to imply that Smitty is only good at the forge, have no doubt he is indeed a pretty fantastic farrier. Not only can he bang out some incredible metal - he can trim, dress a foot and drive a nail. Man of few words and many many talents. But don't get me wrong - he is a good read as well. Yes, there is an art to his words as well. Kinda like his foot work - it does not take many words to make his point. And those who apprentice with him are up to speed in no time - doing work most think not possible. The man is a master - and it ain't just the iron he shines at. Great to follow his work on line and all who read and see his work are fortunate he takes the time to publish it.

    Always a mere minion at his feet.

    Rick was not the only one persisting with personal commentary in this thread, but since it's been an ongoing issue with him, he ran out of lives on this site. It's a shame to lose a knowledgeable poster, but it's not fair to other members of the community to continue to extend membership to someone who persists in pushing or overstepping our posting policies.

    Poor mods! You guys must cringe any time you see a hoof thread or a slaughter thread start up. God forbid someone want to discuss whether slaughter bound horses are better off shod or barefoot!

    Well, I, for one, think they're better off barefoot. Less shrinkage after the carcass is dressed and weighed.

    Sometimes i almost wish my horses needed shoes so I can see how my farrier does. It does look nice when they're freshly shod.
