    Thanks! I have decided to let this horse go barefoot for a while, since he is sounder without his shoes on. I am not sure it is the shoes or a farrier change but he is sounder.

    Guns don't shoot people and shoes don't shoe horses.

    I didn't realize that all farriers didn't bring a forge with them. There are times my farrier doesn't need one, but he always has it available. This week he specifically mentioned that it was just too darn cold to even think about hammering on cold metal.
    If you have wind coming thru the door, just face the horse into the wind, and the smoke will blow towards back of horse.
