Opinions on Happy Hoof Wear Horse Shoes

What do you guys think? Has anyone tried them? My farrier says they are pretty great. However he doesn't glue them on( he doesn't like the glue) he nails them on like normal. So tell me what you think! I may want to try them!

That's what they look like.

Pink horse shoes.

SR has to see these. I am sure all her horses will want pink shoes.

Back on track - I have never heard of them. Off to google.

I mentioned them to my farrier the last time he was out (as a joke, I wasn't being serious, my horse is barefoot) and there was some mention of pigs flying and the day I bought a plastic horse is the day he'd nail on a plastic shoe.

Horseshoes should be shaped to fit each individual hoof, not the other way around. You can't change the shape of a pre-done plastic shoe. My farrier's biggest pet peeve is when someone takes a metal shoe and hacks away the horse's hooves until they fit the shoe, instead of changing the shoe to fit the hoof. I heard all about it as he was yanking the shoes off a recently purchased pony and trying to salvage what was left of the poor thing's hooves.

OMG I think Hunter would totally disown me if I put pink shoes on him lol.

Alwaysbehind: they come in nearly every color! Lol I love it.
Delfina: that's sad :/ I'd never let a farrier do that to my horse. My farrier however is trying these new shoes on his own horses first. But this is a good point to bring to my attention. I agree that a horseshoe should be fit to the horse.

So I asked my farrier & he said that you can shape these shoes to fit the horse. I'm really thinking about putting these on Mocha, if 4H requirements are okay with them.

I wonder who they shape them. Interesting.

I should have asked but I didn't have much time because he still had 4 other horses to do. Lol
