I was thinking that too. Mine are barefoot & not ouchy on any surface & I don't do any maintenance between every 6 week visits by a.....farrier!
I suppose all horses are different.
My limited experience with boots consisted of frequent rest stops while a riding partner retrieved her boots & put them back on- over & over again. I'd take shoes over that mess.
