I agree about not letting the shoes fall off, but once they are barefoot, with 300 acres to roam on they may not need to be trimmed the average 6-8 weeks. That is a lot of ground the horses have to cover and there is a good chance that the amount of moving the will be doing will allow them to go longer between trims. I wish I had that much land for my horses! I think I need to move lol
