"A square wheeled potato cart."
That's how our new farrier described Marley when he watched him move. Like a square wheeled potato cart.
He said Marley walks like he's wearing these on his feet.
Poor Marley. We've been concerned about how easily he trips due to his low heels and long toes, even with hoof trims every 6 weeks. His heels are very short and very sloped. Previously we were told he has bad hoof conformation and nothing can be done about it. Our new farrier is hopeful that he can correct the issue, so he put shoes on Marley's fronts to protect his heels in hopes that they'll grow. We'll know more in 10 weeks.
We like our new farrier. He gives us cookies.
Do you want to know what the farrier said about my hooves?
I don't wish to brag, but if you really want to know.
He said... (I'm blushing now)...he said that I have "beautiful feet."
Maybe I could have a career as a hoof model.
