comparison hoof touchdown: same horse shod and unshod - YouTube

This is pretty cool too...and not gross! It shows a comparison of a shod and unshod hoof hitting hard ground.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

Anyone notice how much farther they pressed down on the shod hoof compared to the trimmed hoof? Watch where the wood touches the top of the hoof. It barely grazes the trimmed hoof, but crunches into the .."shod" hoof.

So my conclusion order to break a coffin bone, you must hydraulically press 3/4 inch farther than you did on a barefoot one. Nice try sweden

This makes a good point. If the hoof is nailed to the shoe, it cannot expand outward , sideways and put that kind of lateral pull on the bone. It is not an accurate display.

I do appreciate the amazing mechanism of the hoof, though.
Mac's been shod for 15 years and ridden vigorously on varied terrain for many of those years and he is SO not lame.
