I know he is trying very hard to help my horse, is not pushing me to shoes or wanting me to worry....but that's my nature.
    Do you really think you can educate yourself about the hoof by reading stuff on the Internet?

    Considering 2 certified trimmers have contacted me and given very helpful advice and pointed me towards other top online (and offline) sources, yes I've already gotten much help from the internet. Thanks anyway...

    Wow - so you guys equate the COTH forum with that commercial, yet you personally make thousands of posts yourself? So you're the "French guy".

    I don't post here that much, but figured it was a matter of time before one of my topics takes the turn I've seen in others. Trying to educate myself and get told "don't be naive". Nice! I'll stick to TOF where people are at least polite.

    I'm done here.

    I post arguments that I can substantiate with logic, physics, and what I have tested that others can test themselves and get the same results.

    There is a difference between that and making an argument by deferring to an "authority." In effect, it means you cannot substantiate your argument.

    Did you perhaps miss class the days that critical analysis and thinking were taught?

    I know the OP said she was done on this thread, but can you explain what a crena marginalis is (or direct me to a picture somewhere?)

    Just curious; I have not heard that term before.

    Thanks!

    I have a horse with this condition for the last six years I have owned him. I always just felt it was caused by previous owner using toe clips which would be "pressure" and the fact he is large; "more pressure". But the article indicates toe clips being a far stretch.. but it's still pressure.

    This is an area of study that I would be interested to see if there is much more understanding or research... it's an issue that seems hard to resolve and affects many horses.
    How people treat you is their KARMA.... how you REACT is yours!
