Just from reading your posts shows that you are close minded when it comes to shoes.
I suppose I followed people to barefoot because they too were at a time believing in nothing but shoes. ("And I beleive in Pete Ramey because, like I've said before, I can FEEL energy, I can see it. There's no limit to distance, and the children of today and tomorrow are a new breed, it will come to the point where one will be unable to lie to any child cus the child will know. Many already exist.") But I haven't found any shoers that went to shoes from barefoot because it was better. But remember, what I had found on shoeing was limited and quite sparse with any examples. Yet from the barefoot side I've seen examples of endurance horses, horses on pavement that wore their shoes thin, read stories of all the same and so many other stories the list just goes on and on. Typically the story starts the same way, "this horse has hooves that will always need shoes, it's genetic, it's a "type of horse" so it'll always need shoes, the hoof is white, and on and on. Lots of evidence and case studies I could find on it.
Perhaps I need to go back and see if there is more knowledge I can find on the internet about shoes. Yet when I was researching it I could find hardly no examples of case studies of cured horses. Matter of fact I think I only found one example, but it didn't show the hooves it only showed the picture of the pony and how it was now happy in shoes. At least that's how I recall it. Mostly I could find shoeing schools and some forums. The forums were good cus I could find some pictures. But I found quite a bit of stuff on youtube too though.
Don't take all I'm saying the wrong way. I'm willing to learn. Yet what I've learned so far has lead me to beleive in barefoot. And I can't seem to bite my tongue because of all the knowledge I've been able to turn over. It's like asking me not to comment when I hear about the commercials saying, "we need money to research for a cure to cancer", bah. Forest for the trees. $$$ Them human sized microwaves aint cheap to build. Curing disease is easy and it will put an entier industry to its knees when enough people become educated. "Yeah yeah I know a little off track, but I'm just trying to convey how it's hard for me to bite my tongue."
Also I have had shod horses in my life. They weren't my horses, but my grandpas. I remember little about it though. I mostly remember the farrier coming out and being fascinated at watching him work on the horses. At the time I never thought a thing of it, I was too young to question anything, and I thought everything taught to me was correct. "Like being told since I was born that I had allergies and I NEEDED to take medicine. But once I questioned it and threw away all my medicine I have become nearly cured of my allergies. It used to be BAD, I couldn't stand being outside in the summer because of it, bad, so so bad." Again a little off topic but a smidgen of a hint as to why I question nearly everything and how I've been able to develop an ability to sense energy.
Geeze I just go on and on. And I never knew it would quite a controversial subject. I am merely wanting people learn that there is another way. I should of realized it would be though, just like telling people that they don't need to be infected by this or that disease. Most all of the time all I hear back is, the doc says this or that, blah blah blah, etc etc. And all they are really telling me is, "I wanna die, I don't enjoy this world." On and on I go, I just don't have the ability to let people suffer. Sometimes I think that most would look at me and say to themselves that I'm way too young to know all I that I do. But one must be humble like a child to inherent the keys to the kingdom. "a statement not very well understood by most"
