To shoe or not to shoe!! So the thoroughbred that I rescued is wearing front shoes right now. From what the owner told me, he was very wormy and not properly treated a while ago, so his hooves suffered a bit due to the lack of nutrients. That is why she shod him. I'm thinking of taking off the shoes. I can see where the new growth is coming in and its looking nice. I am not working him nor will I be doing so for a while.
I am all for keeping a horse barefoot if I can. Any opinions?
