Well I can't find any of these pads that are so pure and traditional and perfect. Can you show me what they look like.
Look? I guess so. I was reading about them a little bit ago. The 'good' ones. But the bad thing is that they leave 'bars' on the hoof. hoof bar.jpg
It's not abusive, but not necessarilly desirable either.
Flat shod, I can't complain? At least they are not soring them?
That's like saying "Well, I can't complain. He doesn't hit her in public."
That's the most amazing view I've ever seen. Sure I can complain. They cause much damage just in a different way.
When I wrote that I figured that one would think that.
I apologize. That wasn't a very good look on it. BUT... Flat shod is better than pads, right?

This has turned into a mess.
Originally, all I was *trying* to say was that I really didn't think that TWHs on the 'extreme high abusive' list.
SURE, they get abused. I will never ever forget that.
But... There are so many people that are good about it (or at least as good as they can
be). They take good care of their show horse. Give him 'breaks' off pads. Don't use heavy chains. Etcetera.
Truly? It'd just be better to quit it altogether.
Does that make any
