You got that right. I noticed a huge improvment in one of mine after the shoes came off. He's actually got a hoof wall now! Took a year, but he's so much better for it.

I have been having issues with Toby losing his shoes prematurely as well.
My farrier told me to start using Tuff Stuff around the nails 2x's a week. He said his hoof walls are thin too.

Without front shoes he goes lame though.

Since she has a thin-wall & it's difficult for the shoe to stay on, I'd go barefoot. It's healthier for the hooves too!

Ask your farriers if they use apoxi. When my horse has lost his shoe and his wall is getting really thin from throwing the shoes my farrier will actually build around his foot with the apoxi and it holds up really nice, because my horse can't go without shoes he goes lame too, but also using the bell boots help.

I don't knwo if anyone said this already, but what about bell boots if it is a front hoof. When I first got my horse he pulled 4 shoes and 3 weeks, now he lives in rubber pull on bell boots and hasn't lost one since (knock on wood:)

Has anyone used the tuff stuff? Would that work? My boy slipped two shoes in one week. We sell tuff at the feed store I work at so if you think its a good product then id be willing to try it. How does putting it on the nails help?

I have aa tb, and I wear bell boots, also my horse used to lose shoes all the time and tearing his poor hooves apart! I've put him on an NAF supplement, its called pro feet, its really good, takes around 4 months to work as you have to wait for the new hoof wall to grow and it grows back stronger, but I find his hooves are fine now and he's lasting around 5 and a half weeks between farrier visits!
