Help horse hooves dangerously short

Hello Im angel and my newest horse has run back and forth so much that her hooves are very short. The only farrier around is to busy to answer my phone calls(six weeks ago my other horse had her shoes on for 3 months and I finally removed them myself and trimmed her feet) and the horse keeps kicking the easy boots off I was told to duck tape them but the tape sticks to the horse and not the boot! Im very scared Is there any kind of glue on shoes or a paste I can make to glue some shoes on her? I Wrapped duck tape around her hoof this morning until I can figure out something else

hmmm that does not sound good I would think maybe stalling with rubber mats and shavings maybe? Untill the feet grow some and get shoes on them as soon as it is safe.
Then maybe also get the farrier on with them on a regular time every 6 weekes or so.

Also welcome to HF

Thank you. Iv tried to put her in a stall but she runs in a circle and paws the ground and kicks the walls and actually busted a door off the hinges. Iv tried to find another farrier but none will come out this far in the country. This horse was given to me for free due to anxiety(from abuse) im going to give her camomile to calm her nerves but she doesnt want to eat. The reason she is acting like this is because I moved my other horse(no water on this property it must be hauled to the animals by truck) she has already ran through a metal fence and busted several posts. I put a calf in with her but its not helping.

PS even if I make an appointment the farrier never shows up(He owes me money for taking care of his horses for a week) My neighbor has to haul her horses out of here to get them shod but my dodge is broke down(Clutch went out)

She needs the company of her own kind. Some horses cannot tolerate being alone, she sounds like one of them.
I doubt she'll settle on her own so you have to do something before other problems pop up.

You trimmed your own horses feet to short? I would NOT recommend trying to fix this yourself. Get a farrier, any farrier, out there! I hope you don't need anyone to tell but your horse is in a LOT of pain. If she can't be stalled and won't wear the boots I'd grab a towel, fold it up into a square, and duct tape it to the hoof for some extra padding. Or you can get foam board and do the same. But get a vet and farrier out to see her!

SlideStop, she didn't trim her horse's feet, the horse wore them down. She pulled shoes and trimmed her -other- horse.

First..could we get a picture? I'd love to see a horse who'll wear their feet down that bad.
Second, I'd definitely put her in with your other horse, she should be much better that way.
