    My experience with glue on shoes was ugly. I was very sad with my $300 magical shoes that only lasted a day and a half. The second round was a little bit of nail and a lot of glue and that was a better situation.

    Glad you had luck with them! I have a friend that swears by the glue-ons... My not so much..... :(

    There was never any guarantee they would stay put but the version used, the ones with the fabric cuff, were supposed to be the best version out there...there is no blue on the actual shoe..only in the cuff which attaches to the hoof..it keeps it more solid.

    Let me address a few other concerns..:). As a reminder the glue ons were first; the horse went about 6 and a half weeks and THEN regular shoes were put on..hence the nail holes..the glue ons were not nailed.

    AS for the soreness issue, there was a concern due to the fact that even with nearly 7 weeks growth, the hoof wa still a little short. When the farrier trimmed after taking off the glue ons he took very very little off...it was more like a nail filing than a trim. Prior to the glue ons the horse was very tenderfooted..we didn't know if changing out what I referred to as the "Dr Scholls" version of shoes (the glue ons had a gel pad in between the shoe and the bottom of the hoof) would allow him to be tenderfooted again as the height between the ground and the sole was lessened..if that makes sense.

    In this case everything worked out and while there was a definitive difference in the feel going from the gel padded glue ons to regular steel, he is feeling back to what he was with the glue ons and is solidly sound.

    The flares in the feet were pre-glue on..that pic is from the first day I saw him and yes, he was foot sore and his feet were very short. The owner had pulled the front shoes (he was always barefoot behind) due to the fact she was away a lot to shows and didn't want to chance the horse pulling shoes in the field. Her barn staff member that looked after the place in her absence could feed, clean and turnout but wasn't real knowledgeable about shoes and such.

    The bottom shot with the regular shoes is 6 and a half weeks later.

    Yes, I am talking about the lower picture. Have they been addressed?

    The new shoes have only been on a week and a half so yes, corrections are going to be ongoing for a couple more cycles. But trust me, the condition of his feet are 1000% improved. :)

    I have a very good farrier who knows what he is doing. There are actually no flares now..Rigo has HUGE feet and the pic angle may be deceiving..he takes a size 3 shoe.

    My indirect experience with glue ons was very positive. Champion show horse could not hold (I think) regular shoes and was carted down to the nearby specialist regularly to get his special shoes, it was the only thing that worked for him, and work it did!

    Glad you found the trick for your boy!
