    Barefoot is not going to work with this horse on this terrain. He can't even go in plain shoes behind without pads because this gravel is so bad. I have no other options unless I want to ride...

    Hahaha, you would never guess from watching this horse walk that he could remove shoes with such talent and determination. His preferred walk speed is somewhere between "elderly man with cane" and...

    Patti, if you PM me your email addy I can send you trim pics. The Gloves are boxed up to return as the one is totally ruined, and the heels are too wide to go down a size unless I rasp off a good...

    His hooves are never in poor condition except this one year. Now that he's been barefoot for a month or so, they are perfectly fine. The stomping at flies and running around on hard ground made the...

    I haven't ordered the power straps. I did email Easyboot to see if they had any recommendations before I sank more $$$ into these. I know easyboot has the 30 day guarantee, but I've had other...

    Yep, I was using the wide sizes. 2 in front, 2.5 behind. I can get the size 2 on behind, but his heels don't actually seat into the boot. In looking at the fronts, his heels are pretty tight in...

    Easyboot Glove fail, what now?

    I've posted before about my Arab who is impossible to keep shod. He has a short back with long legs, and he over tracks a good bit. This obviously results in many lost shoes, no matter how the...

    If you haven't tried powdered ginger, I would try that. It's the only thing that helped my mare. I fed her 2 to 3 T three times a day in some feed. I also used a silicon bundt pan to make an ice...

    I think I'm leaning toward, at least for now, not doing HW every day. The assignments I do have for HW are simple, shouldn't take more than 15 minutes or so, and are more prep-work for the following...

    I trim and shoe my own. No other options unless I want short shod on a 42 derrière angle all around. It's that bad. I've had a few good farriers teach me over the years.

    There aren't even halfway decent farriers here, much less trimmers who carry boots. I really don't want to go used because of how this horse destroys shoes and bells. I want the 30day warranty in...

    Hoof boot help

    My gelding simply will not stay shod. I finally managed to get the front shoes to stay on, and now he spends so much time stomping at flies and playing in the pasture that he's torn his hooves up. ...
