[RC] close enough is good enough - Dot Wiggins

Short horse shoer story.

Same shoer for years.    He has a tendency to fit the shoes closer around
the heels than I would prefer. What I think is not quite enough support for
the back quarters.  We talk about it now and then.
OTOH    He is presently finishing the 5th season on my current endurance
In all that time the horse has never taken a lame step, never stumbles,
never interferes, never lost a shoe. Strides out well enough to be efficient
and get a BC now and then.  This horse is well down the list of endurance
horses with pretty much the same results  He gets along with all the horses,
does a great job of first trims and shoes for youngsters, and even some that
other shoers can't deal with..
So why should I care that the shoes don't exactly as I think they should?
I'm sure I'm going to leave well enough alone and let him do whatever he
wants with her shoes. {;>)
