Perhaps he's so much worse this time because the problem has progressed a lot more since he was last out of shoes? It sounds like it's time to start addressing the problem.
Hmmmm ok, it's a friends horse, that needs to be spelled out because of heaves, however because of the icy conditions outside he cannot be out safely with those darned shoes on.....I might suggest another alternative....thanks for the info

BTW... White hooves aren't any softer/weaker than black hooves. It's a common myth, likely from the fact that they show bruises more readily.
