I have been wondering which is better for horses being barefoot or shoes. All of my horses have always been barefoot, but I have a mare that's hooves need correcting. Would it help if she had shoes? Her hooves go outward on her front hooves. The inside is also bad. They are really deep, it's hard to explain. I've heard that shoes hurt their joints. I have just been wondering if it would help at all. She also has trouble walking on hard surfaces, especially rocks. So I was just wondering what everybody thinks tomorrow ill try to get a picture of them. And my farrier is in Arizona until march, but usually there hooves do just fine until then. Thanks.
