DIY Horse Shoes?

I am a fan of Discount Pet Supplies, Pet Supply, Online Pet Supplies and I was looking at their Equine section and came across this: BLD51L58

(If link doesn't work, type in "horse shoes")

I had to call them and ask them a question about their goat vaccines, and I went ahead and asked him about them, and asked "can you do these yourself?" and he said "yes". Of course, a veterinarian would know for sure, so I have to ask. But what has anybody else heard?

Several products pull up when you search "horse shoes" are you talking about the traditional shoes, or the easy boots/boas?

I'm sorry, should have been more specific! I meant the traditional shoes.

Technically, anyone can "shoe" a horse - the art is in doing it correctly ;)

I agree with JDI - you can actually do more harm than good if you don't know how to shoe.

A better investment might be those horse boots that you can use over and over so long as you keep your horse trimmed

I talked to my best friend (the one giving me the horse) and she said that it would probably kill her since I have never done it before, and like mentioned, it can do more harm than good. For $110 the horse farrier will do all four shoes AND trimming of all four feet.
