These are some snippets of feedback on accuracy that I've received:
Me - her energetic blackness was caused by an accident when she was a foal. Owner - yes, I was told about a big accident she had as a foal, in a drain I believe.
Me - right hind hoof, the heels are too long. Owner - I doubt it, just trimmed at weekend but will check tonight. Next day, owner - omg, you were right, 1cm longer, and I remembered I'd been interrupted why trimming and hadn't finished that hoof!
Me - there's a problem with the tail; damaged in some way from being pulled on. Owner - he got badly caught up in an electric fence and had 2 pigtails attached to his tail, he had obviously been pulling them round with his tail getting yanked on for several hours.
Me - there's a skeletal problem with the left fore, whole leg. It is an issue and will be an issue in the future - it's serious and will cause lameness. Potential owner - thank you, that's fantastic. I knew there was a problem with the left fore, an injury as a foal. I will stop pursuing it.
