Then when the horse is lame, owner gets the blame for not following up on the extensive barefoot maintenance program.
Not trying to pick a fight here just curious. Are you against horses not wearing shoes period or just people who follow a "trimming fad" so to speak?
It seems like a balanced trim is a balanced trim no matter if there is a shoe involved or not. If the trim is correct there will be no problem from the trim. Am I incorrect in your opinion?
