Let me ask you this, which kids feet are toughest ? The ones that only walk on carpet and wear shoes all the time ? Or the ones that constantly run around barefoot. When I was a kid I could run on gravel roads barefoot. Shoes were for school. You didnt waste them. Now I imagine I could feel a grain of rice. Id keep that horse barefoot and work him. He isnt being ridden yet. Wouldnt hurt to add some gravel around the water troughs, Exposure to hard a varied surfaces along with proper diet.

His soles thickness is only 6mm. OUCH!!! This poor horse needs something between his feet and the ground whether it be shoes or boots. This is no situation for toughing it out. 6mm is nothing. Sole thickness will only come if this horse come move around comfortably while it takes time to develop.

Agree, no horse should be in pain. Personally boots would be the way to go for me, so the hoof could function properly (with the correct diet) and grow thicker :)
