Thanks everyone...I think we will get through it. I just don't have a lot of experience with shoes on my horse. One thing I have not spoken with my farrier about is what I should watch out for right after my gelding gets his new shoes. I plan on asking him when he comes out to put them on...but if you guys have any thoughts on it I would appreciate it.
He has 100% pasture time right now with access to a two stall barn when ever he wishes. There are some muddy spots in the pasture. There are no rocks, hills, ect in the pasture. Is that going to any problem since he has never had shoes? Or will the free exercise help his legs and hooves as they get use to the new weight?
Sorry to be so spastic... I am just nervous and most likely going to be over protective of my big boy.
