  • shoe slipped forward off heel buttress VERY slightly.problem?

    hello, i am hoofheartsoul and i am O.C.D about my horses hoofs

    today my horse was reset and everything is fine...except.

    on his RF the lateral heel of the shoe must have slipped forward very slightly while nailing (or he just didn't notice) and is not covering all of the heel buttress but by a VERY slight margin.

    when i say slight i mean slight
    if you imagine the heel buttress ( as if you were picking up the hoof normally and looking at it) as an inverted triangle the very tip/point of the inverted triangle would be the part left uncovered.

    MOST of it is covered except the VERY VERY back narrowest part.

    would this cause a problem??? my farrier is a very nice guy and would fix it if i asked. but i want to wait till he comes back out Feb 2nd and ask him over something so minor that isn't causing any problems YET.

    the the question is: is it going to cause a problem for him( my horse)?

      Why don't you give your farrier a call and ask him if it is a problem or not?

        because this time that i called him he came out special. and i don't want to bother him or seem like a nit picking(which i might be)

        he will be out again in 2 weeks.

        i just wanted to know for the time being if it should be of major concern or ride as normal. but the best answer WOULD probably come from him. *sigh*

        he is going to HATE me.

          I don't understand the issue. If it didn't bother him to let the horse walk off without checking his heel fit, why should it bother him if you call and complain?
