A week ago Castle was pawing the fence and got his right hoof (well, the shoe) caught on it, spooked and ripped the fence off the post AND the shoe off his hoof. He didn't sustain any injuries and he seems sound. He's not lame and doesn't seem sore.
Now, we're in a tight situation when it comes to money. I wanted the farrier out right there and then to either A) put the shoe back on, or B) take the remaining shoe off. But my parents said that it's going to be too expensive, blah blah blah.
So, my situation is, my parents aren't going to get the farrier out right this second. How long can Castle go with just one shoe on? If I do ride, will there be any damage? If so, I won't ride, but will there still be some kind of injury waiting to happen even if I don't ride?
