Even if this message is old I would like to replay. I agree with the latest for points.
I want to specify my position about the first one. Yes, to lower the heels means to lower the angle P3/ground BUT :
too low heels could means sensitivity in the back of the foot, pain
and related difficulty to walk properly.
I think better to have the horse landing firmly on the heels because comfortable and standing still on flat surfaces with a steep angle due to it.
I am more concerned about the impact than standing still horses.
Consequently the proper height of the heels are to be found case by case. Depending from many circumstaces.(HOOFREHAB-PETE RAMEY)
Thank you, Franco (bitlessandbarefoot-studio)

If you can get a good trimmer down there, who will:
* Lower the heels significantly to the point that hooves "rock" onto the heels
* Disengage toes
* NOT carve sole
* Come back at least every 2 weeks
* Suggest proper nutrition with good mineral balance and (!) added Magnesium
Then you can help her significantly.
With these hrses body work is often necessary for full recovery as well.
What are you feeding her?
