    Glad your mare is okay!

    Husband the farrier said she pulled the inside first, bent it down. Shows in the twist of shoe. She then probably got the boot down ove hoof and onto the half pulled shoe as it flopped along on her hoof. Then she pulled the shoe with all the junk hanging on it, the rest of the way off.

    Hope she didn't step on the clip doing all this. Have you checked her sole for damage? Had to be interesting to find the whole thing sitting there.

    Obviously the shoe was a casualty of the horse rejecting the bell boot.

    lol! I like this answer :-)

    And yes she is fine, got a new shoe on today! Thank goodness! However she does this and doesnt hurt herself but with my luck she will just trip at the walk and be lame for life... ::bite my tongue and knock on wood::

    Maybe the boot fell off and her shoe got caught on it after that? Glad your mare is ok!
