    One point I would like to make based on the responses to this thread is to take slight issue with the notion that just because these guys are "practicing" for a competition means they are a bunch of...

    My question is how short did this guy trim the horse that he couldn't drive nails for 4 months and now has to use rim pads???? :eek:

    Not a vet and not a cat owner but I do have a diabetic beagle. We use a One Touch Ultra. I will say one of the drawbacks is you will get a error reading if the blood sample is not big enough, so...

    The price you quoted is about the cheapest (give or take a buck or 2) you are going to find for new horseshoes.

    The cheapest avilable shoe at my local supply shop is the St Croix Plain which is 4...

    Not sure of your price range but a nice little Oxy/Acetalyne outfit would make a great gift. It will really give him a lot of versatilty in the field and allow him to sell add ons like Borium and bar...

    Would be tickled to hear his thoughts on "corrective farrier work" LOL

    I get lots of referrals for Navicular syndome and chronic heel pain. Many times the horses are in egg/straight bars and not doing well. Bar shoes are not for every horse/case. In some cases they are...

    Synthetic shoes are becoming popular with mounted police departments. The rubber provides a good amount of grip on pavement and helps to absorb shock to prevent joint issues that are common with...

    Like Patty said I would need pics and much more info before I even began to think about specifics. I was just speaking in gross generalities that the horse needs some additional support to unload his...

    IMO I would move to an orthotic asap. A barehoof is still bearing a considerable percentage of weight on the heels no matter how its trimmed. A sheared/crushed heel needs to be unloaded in order for...

    Scott, I think its also important to further break down the broad cateogory of "using clips".

    On one hand you have those who angle the clip to the hoofwall during the shaping process, then burn...

    LOL Patty :)

    Reminds me of a time I got called in by a vet on an chronic laminitis case heading south.

    The vet was out the day before and took xrays and told the owner the toe needed to be...

    This discussion gets brought up on Horseshoes.com every now and then.

    I carry Natural Balance shoes. I use them mostly on horses with long toes and/or chronic heel pain. To me they are just another tool in the box. I am not a "Natural Balance shoer" but I have had...

    Double S, you may want to quit now. Seems like Rick is mercifully treating you with kid gloves here. I can assure you he has dealt with many hundred (if not thousands) of similiar cases in his...

    Whenever I use full pads I prefer to use Silpac or Equipak because here in South Fla moisture is such as issue. The silicone and urethane based products really seal up the hoof a lot more than MC and...
