Try to not let this happen to your horse - this is the result of a natural shoeing cert. expert.

With all this hype, B.S., and fad shoeing, the after effects on the horse are sometimes irrepairable. You should really do some extended study and re-think what you are doing, before continuing on with this type of work. Not understanding shoeing any better than this, is very sad. For the sake of the animal, stop doing this. But then at the same time please continue. The majority of our business is repairing these messes, and we do appreciate the money. At least try to be more professional.

Just pick up the foot, cut something off, nail something on. The owner has no interest in what you're doing. As long as there's four pieces of something under the animal, and it's the chepaest price they can pay.... they're satisfied.
