    I agree Tom. That is a very big part of the problem. Many people here are cheap and the bulk of horses are backyard ornaments who will often go all winter without seeing a trim. I do what I do for...

    Ignoring all the off track comments, I have used several types of casting for several applications and here is what I have noted that come to mind just now. Take it FWIW.

    I feed about 6 lbs of Ultium a day split into two 3 lb feeds. But yeah you can feed up to 12 lbs a day if needed since it is forage based (I think beet pulp based)

    IME, keep the feeds small tho....

    I hate safe choice. I have watched horses get thin eating loads of it. I just dont think its a quality feed for a horse like a TB that might be a bit of a hard keeper. I even watched easy keeprs get...

    I despise a blunt cut forelock. It reminds me of a kid that cuts their doll's hair. I have to admit, I automatically assume the owner is a novice when I see a chopped forelock lol...I supposed that...

    I ride in Renegades as well as barefoot quite often and do not notice any gait difference at all in them. The horse also seems to feel the ground in them as they do barefoot instead of tromping along...

    No one here can really help you much more than offer an opinion based on two cruddy photos at this point. X rays are a good start for your farrier as well as simply expressing concern over this crack...

    I would not be happy with an unexplained toe crack that would grow out and return. Toe cracks are usually either a product of untreated seedy toe or imbalance left or allowed in the foot. This foot...

    IMO his heels are being left quite high. Lower them and get the frog engaged with the ground better.

    From just these two pictures/angles, I see what appears to be toe distortion, an elongated/stretched frog as well as some heel contraction. IMO inexcusable if I understand you correctly that he has...

    Plain ol Soapy water (I like blue Dawn dish soap mixed in water in a spray bottle) will go a long way and can be used every day when you clean the feet. No need to rinse the soap away either. Pick...

    That horse has massive jamming on the medial walls of both hinds. IMO, there is a problem in his feet from just this one picture.

    Hey! Read what I meant and not what I typed :D hehe....I meant baseball safety net sized holes.

    Is the horse landing toe first on that foot and perhaps flat on the other foot? That will wear the toe off a shoe.

    Sucker, the baseball nets are small enough that baseballs don't go through it. They sell them as safety netting for pitching or batting cages or whatever. I think they are about 1.5 inch squares,...

    Dry lotted horses with no access to green grass with recurring rain rot and probably have goopy eyes and dandruff too? They are deficient in Vitamin A/beta carotene.

    Dalemma is spot on. I teach mine to catch in the round pen or small area also first. Once you get them to turn and face no matter where you go, you can catch even the hardest horse. Clinton A. shows...
