So Lizzy's shoes were pulled at the beginning of October. I wasn't sure when it would snow and I didn't want to risk her having shoes on when it snows. Farrier is due back out last week in November.
She was barefoot all summer except for those last 8 weeks. Next year she will be shod as soon as the snow melts. I plan on doing a lot more riding and getting into endurance. I know they don't need to be shod but I like how well they held up. Plus here is my problem. In the 4 weeks her shoes have been off we have done some pretty serious trail rides. We usually have to walk on the road to get anywhere. Usually on the gravel sides as her ouchyness has gone away since her stint in shoes. But I noticed saturday that her toes have worn to a pretty good square shape.
I will get new pictures tonight, hopefully I remember, the one picture I have is from Friday and it was not taken to show the squareness so bare with me. You can still see the square part starting. It is more pronounced now.
Is this from her not picking her feet up all the way? Or is it just wearing from doing a lot of riding on the road/gravel?
I don't want boots now as we are getting into the fall muddy season.
