To fit them, you just shave/cut around the edge until they conform to the hoof. My farrier has been using polyurethane shoes of another brand with very good results. He'd never heard of HHW, but I'm trying to get him to experiment on my old crippled horse. Either way, I think we'll try one kind of plastic shoe or another the next shoeing cycle.
Don't know about that particular type, but I like the wide web - provides a little support to the sole. I don't like the idea of the bar, but perhaps that can be cut out. Plastic shoes are a bit better than steel in regard to shock absorption/vibration but are pretty much the same when it comes to effects on hoof function.
The plastic shoes are also said to improve the joints drastically because of the good absorption. Horse who haves used them are said to move much better. & thanks Bubba for giving me insight on how to shape the shoes. Let me know how they work for you. I've heard nothing but good reviews from people who have used them. Posted via Mobile Device
