Are any of you out there farriers? I have a few questions that I would like to ask you about your trade and will pm them to you if you would rather keep it confidential.
Interested in your opinions, sirs.

Yearling colt gettin to be club foot on off front. He wasn't born that way, I figure he either jerked the toe off on river rock, or just had a growth spurt in an unfavorable direction. What would you suggest for helping straighten him out prior to starting him next spring? I will take a picture to post later--all opinions and time are/is appreciated.
Yes, have your farrier take down the heel "SLOWLY" and stand him up. Trim up too fast and it can cripple a horse because it pulls on the tendions of the leg.

Good luck
