    Horrible, horrible news

    Today, Painter lost his first shoe *sob*

    Okay, so maybe it's not that bad, teehee. But he's had 4 shoes for over a year and never lost one, even in horrible mud with no bell boots running like an idiot. SIgh, now I can't brag about that anymore. He was totally fine riding though

    I don't think you should be riding a horse that is missing a shoe
    And you should get another one put on him asap

    Haha, Painter had no problem with it. I even trotted/cantered bareback on him for the first time! But I did give him a stern talking too about not losing his shoes, naughty pony

    No, it started raining and I didn't feel like getting wet. The shoes were do for a change anyway, they were starting to wear out

    Hehe one time during drill practice my horse tripped and managed to rip a shoe off. My dad who was on the sidelines watched it whirl through the air. I never knew it happened... my horse kept cantering like there was nothing wrong. It wasn't until an hour later of the practice my dad mentioned he saw him do it >.<

    ^^ Still. It's not good to ride horses that are missing a shoe. Makes them off balance, sore, and can really mess up the hoof and create other problems.

    Depends upon the horse mostly I think. Also there is a huge affect of what you are doing with the horse along with what footing you have.
