What was he used for before you bought him? That might explain why they were put on in the first place. I think you're always before off barefoot so I would recommend trying him without and see how his feet are. Tho I know nothing about mustangs, I can't see those guys being known for having feet problems. Worst comes to worst, if he is really that bad you can always throw them back on if you see that nohing will improve their condition.
