Any 'natural barefoot trimmer' I've seen speak in absolutes.. stating all shod horses are tortured and unsound.
You're one who seems to think that all questions exist in a vacuum and that nothing else is pertinent to anything other than the actual question asked. Sorry, life doesn't usually work that way.
Lastly, because I choose to keep certain horse's medical conditions confidential, I'm being chastised.
Right. So if you have a horse with a treatable medical condition and offer him for sale some 5 years later, the anonymous half-informed harpies will come out of the woodwork and spread rumors about what they THINK they read on some BB and put off any prospective buyers.
Because reading for comprehension is such a prevalent talent here.
