I have someone that used the shoes. Let me tell you they are junk. They don't last at all. Ya if your horse is standing around and not doing much they are ok. But still they need to be nailed on and they don't have back shoes for happy hoofwear. Also because of the bar that goes across the butt of the frog does not allow much movement for the frog that it needs.

Do you know how much biotin your horse is getting?

Too much iron in.the diet can be Quality. Many feeds are quite high in iron as well as water. It depletes copper and zinc is important also.

Wow. Ok, the iron comment got me. We just had a new system put in at hour house because the iron content was so high the system we had could not maintain it. The new system has been in for about a month now. I wonder if that is part of it?

As for the biotin, I'm not sure. I had him on the farriers choice supplement but last time I went to tractor supply, I grabbed the Dumar brand because it's cheaper.

He gets Smartcalm, Smartflex, and Smartsox already, should I had smarthoof isntead of the other stuff? Here are the ingredients:

It looks like he getting enough biotin. Have you had a blood supply check on him? He could have low supply to his feet. Horses need to have a good heart to pump the blood from there feet back up. So if his supply is not good his hoof growth can suffer.

That happy wear stuff looks like do-it-yourself shoes! LOL... He's coming tomorrow to put them on, I'm very curious to see the results. I did talk to a friend that had to use them on an OTTB for about a half a year. She said the shoes did come off once but that for the most part she was very happy with them and even showed in them over fences w/out any issues. Once the hoof got to a healthy state she pulled them and let the horse go barefoot...

I geuss we shall see?

Does anyone know how long it will take to put the shoes on? I was thinking I'll stall him at night from now on as well... and on rainy days?

The magical horse shoes are on. They were $150 but they are pretty neat. They are aluminum and the glue on to the bottom and have this fabric type mesh that gets glued onto the outside of the hoof w/ some type of acrylic adhesive. They look really good. I will try to get a picture of them.

I can't wait for pictures. glue on fabric mesh- fiberglass?

What did the farrier say about moisture and all? I know they fiberglass boats and all kinda water crafts-- can't be that water soluble.. I wouldnt worry about it that much- unless the horse was standin in straight mud or somethin.

If I were you, Id test the water/hay the horse is getting and do the math on the iron in his diet so you can properly balance it with copper and zinc. Be worth knowing just how bad the imbalance is.
