Re: RC: help--drastic hoof angle change

 quietly.  The question:  I took over an inch of boat-like toe plus her 3
 shoes off the day I bought her, then the farrier just took off another bit
 of hoof.  Now her feet look normal.  How long should we wait for her tendons
 and joints to recover to start her light exercise?   >>

Eeeew! Be veeeerrrry careful for a week or two. That's a big change--good 
move in the right direction, but too much at one time. No speed, not much 
mileage for a while. You're most likely proble will be a check ligament 
injury if you try to do wny intense work at all.
