Exaclty, smorbs. I can't begin to explain how important it is not to dump the hoof and just fit the hoof to the shoe!

If you reckon that's cool, check out the Renegade hoof boots! I reckon they're ugly, esp the orange ones, but they seem to be a bit of a fashion statement!

Those aren't horseshoes. They're horseshoe shaped objects.

This shoe is much the same as a natural balance shoe. The thick bold toe forces those farriers that fit their shoes to the end of the toe to set the shoe back a little which moves the point of breakover back. Low and behold you ease breakover and the horse moves better, it's a miracle!! You shouldn't need these gimmic shoes if you can properly fit a horse's foot IMHO.

As for plastic shoes, you nail them on and cut to fit. There's some leeway for proper nail placemant. They offer way better shock absorbsion than a pad that's mashed between the hoof and shoe. A good tool to have in any shoers bag of tricks.

I strongly believe that all other farriers should use this shoe. All others.
