    Why does the horse need shoes?

    That's one of my questions... I guess he got an abcess back in the day on the race track (no big deal). He was xrayed and the only thing the paper work said was low palmer angles

    Ya they come down past the shoe, you can see where his R rear hits the R front on the bell boot

    My 5-yr old TB has the same problem. I have a full set of shoes on him with pads on the front, and he kept throwing shoes until we had the farrier put a new type of shoe on that grips on the sides kind of so if they step on it from behind it won't come off. He's just learning where to put his feet and his legs are TREMENDOUSLY long, so he's just getting used to where his feet go. I'll bet your horse has the same problem.

    I'm not sure, my farrier is Amish so he doesn't have the same termonology for shoes and things. They have clasps on the sides though and are heavier.

    My guy is very knowledgeable, has been doing this for 30 some years, I herd nothing but good from people around here about him. I don't think he is the problem. We had pads on him last month till he got some growth going, I just hate not being able to ride, I put an easyboot on him but he is still out of balance!
