These programs often benefit all parties involved, including the horse and are not simply for "throw away" auction/meat bound horses. My guy has actually been in 2 different programs, and in neither one did I pay for farrier work, so that is not typically an expense the owner pays for. I do supply his supplements, because I want to specify what he gets. I know what works. You are also wrong about the amount of time spent in arenas-typically they have MAYBE 2 hour long sessions a day, 4-5 days a week. As far as what he is fed-I told them how much when I took him there 18 months ago-they are responsible for him and have fed him to keep him optimum weight, etc. I do not second guess them, as long as he looks good when I go visit, or my friend, who is a local humane officer does the same.

    Although I am a believer in barefoot, I do recognize that ALL horses cannot go barefoot, and to imply that a farrier is no good because they say that is a bit ignorant. Unless you personally know this horse, you cannot say what this horse needs.

    Oh-and BTW-My horses are not barefoot "to save money".
    Oh my goodness - whoa back a little bit

    I probably should have done my own thinking outside the box instead of commenting based on what someone I have known for years did with her Paint horse that would not stay sound.

    That was after she spent a lot of $$$ money on vets and farriers, pooh-poohed everything I tried to suggest, then GAVE away $3,000 to a Therapy School because she at least wanted to save him from the local slaughter auction if possible. But he'd've gone there if the school wouldn't have taken him

    And no, I have no clue what happened to him after that. We haven't lived in the same state for 15 years. I was more *issed at her than you are at me, and didn't talk to her for nearly a year; by then she had already bought another horse and e-mailed me his picture without saying anything.

    As is usual with our 40-year+ friendship and occasional knock-down-drag-outs, that was pretty much how we got back speaking again. She is pretty much the sister I never had; she has carried me thru the loss of my son and I have carried her non-listening-I-know-everything-hind end thru cancer

    Meaning, this too shall pass - not a whole lot on this forum should be taken as a personal assault unless it's specifically pointed at someone

    Perhaps next time state your personal experience with ONE idiot as just that and avoid generalizing and broad brushing the rest of us in that mentality. Most here want the best for their animals.

    He has front shoes on right now, and it is usually the left front that I see coming off all of the time. He does have an overreaching stride and he wears bell boots.

    To the other questions, he was donated out of the kind of someone's heart and any health problems/behavior problems with any of our horses are mentioned up front by the owners or revealed during the trial period we take them for before adding them to our program.

    I'm honestly not sure how the farrier actually trims his hooves - he comes during the day most of the time while I'm in school. I will ask someone at the barn about it and hopefully they will have some answers for me.

    Thank you guys for your help and suggestions!

    My mare used to throw shoes like clockwork. This had been going on for several years, and through several different farriers, so finally I had chalked it up to "Sunny just has crappy feet that can't hold a shoe properly" and just dealt with it for the 4 months out of the year she needed to be shod.

    THEN I moved to my current barn. Who has an AMAZING farrier. And Sunny has never lost a shoe since being shod by this new farrier. I couldn't believe it.

    So while this is probably not helpful because it doesn't sound like you have much control over which farrier they use, the farrier just might not be that good unfortunately. Maybe they can look into asking the farrier to try shoeing slightly differently or maybe trying a different type of shoe. Sounds like they are doing as much as they currently can to prevent it with the bell boots. :P

    Hello;

    OK. Here goes.....the bell boots are the wrong size!!!

    Don't know if I am right or not but it is something quick easy and cheap to try.

    I had to small a bell boot on my horse and she bent her shoe. I didn't realize that they move when the horse is in motion so what is long enough at a stand still is not when she is trotting.

    You could try the nylon no turn bell boots, just make sure that they cover the shoe completely when on.

    Just a thought. Of course I don't know.

    I think it is great that this horse is being a therapy horse. It is so important for the people and for the horse.

    It is also great that you are so concerned about this horse. I am sure he really appreciates you being in his corner. Good luck with all you do with him.

    Hi;

    I also wanted to say that no question is ever silly. I wish everyone that didn't know would ask. The world would sure be a better, safer place.

    Very kind of you to donate your time to helping people and horses.
