My mare Jas, will forge if her front angles go below 48, & also tends to drag
her rear toes. The shoer squares them off, & front angle is between 52 - 54.
The trot is smooth as glass. She is Egyptian from "The Egyptian Prince", at
14.2, has a slightly longer back & legs, etc. No interference, or shoe
pulling, & is shod year around also.

She does hate to walk, the trot is her thing -
