I want to see pictures too.

My farrier won't do plastic shoes (said he'll do plastic ones once someone gifts him with a plastic anvil to go with.....) but he's done glue-ons and hates them.

We stuck a shoe on my guy with the bare minimum of nails (he ripped off most of his hoof) and then filled the whole foot with Equicast. That took FOREVER to dry but his shoe stayed on!

These are what the horse likely has on. They are a good product in my estimation. I wouldnt want to have to use them long term personally however.

We used Sound Horse Technology products on my guy on one hoof (his one foot crumbled away 3 weeks after shoeing). It wasn't entirely glue on, we put in a couple nails where we could and I don't think he glued the bottom. He put the Poly-Vectran mesh on the outside with the Equacrylic adhesive so that it made a pseudo hoof wall to put the other nails through. Seems to be working, it should be interesting to see the results. Right now this is a sort of trial thing for me, I'm ready to try almost anything. We're considering trying completely glue on shoes to get him through this competition season - I'll update if we go that route next shoeing.

Farmpony I'm pretty sure that your wet paddock has a LOT to do with it. I took my little Amish farrier seriously and made sure that I keep my current horses, who DON'T have any real hoof problems, feet dry at least 1/2 of the day, and he has noticed they are in better condition. My QH, "Ro Go Bar" had bad feet, too, and wet conditions made it worse bc they dry the hoof out...like dishwater dries our hands out. We almost couldn't reshoe when in the Black Hills, SD, he threw a shoe riding on shale. He wore down so much heel, it was really iffy.

I'm curious as I've looked into this but never spoken to anyone who's tried them. I have 1 horse in 5 that has to be shod all the time like yours OP, all kept the same, on the same ground etc and the others have super strong feet, the mare I bought last year who'd never been barefoot and had really poor cracked feet is now great
As soon as my Irish Draft gets on hard ground - ice in winter - her feet break up and she's lame

Well.....

I got the shoes on Tuesday and today is Thursday. I hauled out to a 4 day horse show this morning and five minutes into my lunge... one of my magical shoes fell off. I did find a farrier at the show and he put a new aluminum wedge on w/ nails and then rebuilt the hoof walls on the sides w/ a glue and then added more nails. The front is chipped a little but he left that because he said it looked like it had a little bacteria in it and he didn't want to lock that in.

The other magical shoe looks shifty to me so I think tomorrow I will have it removed and the new one put on. I'll take pictures tomorrow morning of both shoes so you can see the two different versions of glue. The first version does look very much like the above link. The new one is just glue and shoe w/ some nails.

I don't even know what this is going to cost. He didn't bill me today because he wanted to see how magical shoe number two held up. Before I left this afternoon he told me to come see him in the morning......

After the earthquake the water got a little iron in it and then it just went from bad to worse. When the guy came out he told me it was off the charts. It turned my hair, clothes, and tubs orange. We've since gotten a new system and all is well. (The system has been in for about a month).

My horse lost shoes left and right when his feet got wet too often. I had him on farriers formula for a while, but didn't have any success with it. I switched him to SmartHoof and had major improvements. I kept him out of wet footing as much as possible and only hosed him or gave him a bath once a week. I also applied hoof hardener two to three times a week. Once I started doing all of that, his feet were great!

Bottom line. EXPENSIVE. A PAIN. HORSE HATED THEM. LESS THEN TWO RIDES AND THEY BE GONE.... DID I SAY ESPENSIVE, A PAIN... DIDN'T WORK AT ALL?

I'm a down to earth and direct kind of guy.

I would have been tempted to ask the farrier who glued them on, for an extra batch of glue in case they fell off! Either that or duct tape, (used duct tape before, worked too!).
