    I think there are brilliant professionals in both the farrier world and the barefoot world, and it is up to the horse owner to do their homework and decide who is the best for their horse. I am not completely anti-shoe, but for my horses and my situation I prefer them to be bare. My gelding with thin flat soles had thin flat soles while shod, too.
    I have been skimming this barefoot trimmers site and like the examples she provides in her gallery. She is also a big advocate of hoof health including nutrition and environment/movement. I am, too. At the very least I would like to meet her and have a consultation. Then I can make some decisions.

    Thank you all for your opinions. I know this can be a contentious issue.
    Loosie: Does his diet sound right? Might anything be missing? I know he needs more movement...he has a tendancy to stand in the shade of his run in most of the day.
