We just got a new farrier and he is awesome but we have never had a farrier mention that Phantom needed shoes. Is it common for older horses to need shoes, he's 21-22? I mean sometimes his feet splay a bit but not bad. I don't know if he has ever had shoes so I don't know how he will react, how did everyone elses' horses respond to having shoes first put on??
Sorry if this is a nonsense question....i've just never had to put shoes on my horses.
