It's a dish midway down the hoof such that the edge of the hoof seems flared around the shoe, so maybe that's toe flare? I'm a little worried that my farrier puts on a shoe that is too small, and am wondering if that is contributing to the dishing/flaring that I'm seeing more and more of. The dishing seems to be getting worse over time.
I'm going 6 weeks between farrier appts, but really, really feel that my mare should only be going 5 weeks. The flaring gets worse as the time goes on in between farrier visits. I might be able to upload pics.
