Thanks for your reply! I've been a bit nervous about going barefoot again, because, remember, she got her shoes on after she was diagnosed with naviculars, which meant she actually got it when she was barefoot before. But, I have a different farrier now, and I think he's a bit better with barefoot trimming. Anyway, she still seems to feel better than before, so let's keep our fingers crossed... She's currently getting over 12 hours of field time right now. I wish I could come over more to work with her, but since school's started I've been hit with a wall of homework and can't always make it to the barn as much as I would like. She's mostly eating grass and hay, with some grain for the nutrients. She's also getting a joint/hoof supplement (MSM), since I want to protect her joints as she gets older (and maybe help with the naviculars a bit.) She's taking an anti-inflammatory drug (I know some of you don't like that, you prefer homeopathy, but honestly, when she's in pain, all I care about is helping her, no matter how I get that positive result) that's really helped her quite a bit. Her back feet, which have never had shoes on her entire life, look great right now. Her front frogs are already touching the ground, just after our first trim, but I think that's normal because it's not like my farrier trimmed down her heels a lot to get that. It's just her frogs are abnormally healthy for having not been in use for a bit over a year.
Ultimately I trust my farrier, because he's been trained as a farrier and has years of experience, where I don't.
Anni, I'll talk to him about the mustang roll.
