He'll be fine as long as the farrier doesn't leave too much shoe sticking out the back. I wouldn't bother with the bell boots. Your horse may be a little tender but probably not. What you will probably notice is that he goes a lot better and you can ride wherever you want and your horse won't try to wander to the softest ground. It will be much easier to get him to work correctly because none of his feet will be tender.
There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill
