I, too, had nothing but issues with shoes and later learned that I was a victim of an old farriers' trick of shoe-ing just as size too large so that my horse's hind feet would catch the edge of the shoe hanging out the back of her front feet. My farrier of the time received his fair share of shoe replacement $$$ between resets, let me tell you!
I have been a Farrier for thirty years and have never heard of that . Most likely it was just unbalanced, poor shoeing. The usual culprit with frequently pulled shoes is shoeing to the end of a front toe wit ha flat shoe, which delays breakover, and also leaving too tall of a heel on the front feet which also delays breakover. Or leaving too much heel on the front shoes, allowing them to be grabbed. In other words unbalanced trimming and shoeing, ,
As well most farriers I have ever known (including me) do not charge for replacing pulled shoes within a reasonable time frame of the shoeing.And the have tight schedules so it would be to their detriment to do anything deliberately to cause pulled shoes. It is a real PITA for a farrier.
