[RC] Angled pasterns and shoeing - Patti Pankiewicz-Fuchs

At Sera's first LD recently I asked the vet for some suggestions on her weak points/areas to work on. No surprise he mentioned that she has a bit too much slope to her pasterns and needs to be "under herself more". He mentioned something about round shoes? I tried to explain to my farrier and he understood the complaint, but not the solution. He's thinking the vet meant bar shoes, but my farrier didn't think you'd want to compete in those.
Just wondering if any of you guys might have some advice for shoeing or anything for that matter to help me keep her sound. My farrier does not know anything about endurance (not really any in this area that do) but he is open to new ideas and not one of those set in their ways types. Money is also not an issue as we have a barter system with him...he owns a small plane and my husband is an Aircraft Mechanic/Inpsector. Lucky girl, huh?? :)
