Looking through your career, does one case or horse stand out as your toughest hoof-care challenge?
What made this tough?
What did you do to overcome the problem?
My own Standardbred! When I picked him out of a herd dispersal, I thought "This horse is going to teach me about shoeing." I was just starting out, and I did learn from him... He's a classic high-low horse, and I realized, it's not the feet, it's his stance: He leans into one shoulder and it throws his whole body off. When I try to show clients what I did for him, and will help their horses, I feel the same as Esco Buff, like I have a target painted on my back.
