    Picture?

    Tobiano likes to come up over the back of the hocks before the front (meaning, either the back and not the front, or both but the back is higher). Sabino and DW like to come up the front.

    That's what I thought was probably the case - figured you would know better than to try to compare late cycle vs fresh trim :)

    I like the July trim better, for the reasons I stated.

    Yes, the OP horse is a minimal Tobi. A big clue is the white coming up over the hocks. Another clue is the ermine spots all over the legs being a sign of white suppression. I can see it in the...

    I don't see any OATK? Don't look at large knee joints as being OATK :)

    None of the pictures are good for doing a good confo critique :)

    Since Rambo was a TB, and couldn't have had SB1, and it's the SB1SB1 horses who are all white, then it couldn't have been the maximally expressed Sabino.

    It was DW which produced the all whites,...

    I want to study these more when I have more time, but I had to say - it's refreshing to see "short" feet :)

    High nails - sometimes they end up a little higher than the others, but in and of...

    If you're using Puchi-line mares, where there is no LWO, then you wouldn't have lethal foals. But you really do need to test Challenged, since he comes from a pedigree that possibly carries Frame. ...

    I believe she's referring to the Challenged stallion, who does not have any Frame/LWO in his pedigree :)

    The Puchi line horses don't carry it either. There are just a very small handful of TBs...

    He has long, flared/stretched toes, underrun heels, and what looks like the beginning of white line disease. This at least 90% farrier induced - the trimming is all farrier, and the WLD is very...

    Alfalfa hay does generally have more Vit E than grass hay - about 40 IU/kg vs 10 or less for grass hay, according to a study that KER cites. That's just not a lot. You'd have to have the hay...

    I hear ya, and that's just...sad. I just mentioned that because it should give an owner insight into where the farrier's heart really is, and might help make a decision to look for someone else.

    Nice!

    If that's a 33, I would definitely go with a 35, and use a shim if necessary for a while (or even forever, no harm in that).
