All 32 of the horses in the barn are all bare foot the sand makes there feet hard as rocks, and great on the frog also. So there you saved money in 2 places and can pay more for stall. If like to learn how to bare foot trim your own horse be glad to show you.
I can't wait to not have to deal with knee deep MUD all the time like we do up here! I swear, after as much rain as we got this year, it took the pastures 3 weeks of NO rain just to START to dry up and then last night we had a horrid thunderstorm that soaked everything all over again
ugh...every horse in the barn has rain rot to some degree from the damp warm year we've had. And in another couple weeks it'll be snowing, yay...:roll:
It would be neat to learn how to barefoot trim my own horse, but I'd be a little afraid, don't want to mess up her feet! Most trims are only about $35 so I usually just pay that for the security of knowing I'm not going to totally mess up her angles and all that!
