    Since we all primarily look at a hoof with the toe pointing away from us as opposed to looking toward us; and with the technology we have to day; can't we turn the pics so we're looking at them the way we do when we're working on the horse as opposed to observing someone working on the horse? (In pics where we're looking at the bottom of the foot.)
    I'm occasionally turning magazines and books upside down so I can see the hoof in the pic the way I would look at it if I were under the horse.

    I've had an odd desire to make a French Barshoe. This might be enough to finally push me into it.

    Waiting for the temps to get above zero. We'll have a few weekends before the end of the month. I was tempted to put up a pic of one I did last weekend, so I would be in first place for at least a little while, but I decided not to because I can do better.
