I was not sure where to put this quesiton... so I just picked a spot.. I have just been informed by a friend.. that there are "front" shoes and "back" shoes. I was dumbfuzzled to say the least.
I knew the farrier heated and shaped them to fit the foot. But did not realize that there was a specific "front" and "back" shoe.
Is this information correct? If so can someone give me a quick tutorial? As far as I know my farrier has basic sizes and weights. He then heats and shapes the shoe putting on clips or whatever he wants to it.
We just had the horses shod so won't see him again for a few weeks and I am dying to know the truth of the matter.
