Thumbs up Glue on horse shoes for horses with damaged hooves

A designer has created a range of slip-on horseshoes that could revolutionise the hoof repair business.

Made from plastic, the shoes can be glued to the horse's foot rather than nailed on, avoiding the potential trauma and pain of fitting traditional metal shoes.

I'm guessing you're the 'a designer' or you've got a finger in the pie, to be advertising stuff as a new member? This is not a 'revolutionary' idea actually. Glue on plastic shoes aren't new & these ones are solely peripheral loading, so nothing different there either.

How do you get the shoe and glue off without wrecking the horses hoof when it comes time for re-shoeing?

The shoes are known warp the shape of hooves and cause problems.
