Just to fill you all in...

For those of you that wre heavily concerned...

Blu was shod Monday evening. $65 not bad?

About his 'small' hooves, I believe his shoes are size 2? Is that really small? He's really lean and thin built so I think he looks fine. However my friends horse is an inch taller and his hooves are BIG.

Farrier said they weren't bad. Just needed the frogs trimmed and the wall filed mainly.

Size 2!? From what I know about shoes, which isn't much, is that it goes 00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, to however high is goes. And MY horse is a size 00, and she is a 15.2 tank of a paint, lol. =P

And it costs me $90 for a full shoe, $75 for a half shoe, and $40 for a trim.

I don't think I would consider it small, my mare is a size 0 and my walker is a size 1.

Holy cats...From his pictures, his feet sure look smaller than a size 2!! I guess looks can be decieving...but then, he could be built alot heavier too...my last boy was a size 2, and his feet looked proportionate to his body in comparison to Blu *shrugs shoulders*

I'm pretty sure that's what my last farrier said he was. But I can check with this farrier and see what size he says. :)

The size is engraved on the bottom of the shoe, by the heel. Assuming he hasn't worn it down too much yet, you should still be able to see it.

I looked and didn't see anything. Unless I didn't look hard enough...

$65?! My mare's shoes cost me $230 every 6 weeks during the competition season! She needed front pads, but still..

Sometimes it depends on the brand of shoe the farrier uses as well. If he uses pre-pressed shoes, different brands are sometimes different sizes. The brand that my Dad uses, most of my horses either wear a 00 or an 0. However Koda wears a size 2 and his feet are like small dinner plates. However, my brother uses a different brand and 2 of his horses wear a size 1 and one wears a size 2. Their feet are about the same size as my average horses. So the sizes are different by 2 in just those 2 brands. :)

Jasper is a 0 on one foot and a 00 on the other
