I agree. Any sole trimming is mainly for hygiene. Barefoot horses need all the sole they have, and if the soles look good, I don't touch them at all.

Yup, that's what we were taught, to only trim away any old sole that is shedding.

Well, I am going out today and try and find the Easy boot gloves-just so he can be worked more comfortably in the meantime......I feel sorry for him. If I can't find them, will have to resort to internet ordering. Hoope they help-we will see! I figure after the fact I can always use them if I go trail riding in a rocky area.......Thanks all! Will let you know!
