    Horses have been dealing with snow for centuries. Pull his shoes and leave it.

    Some of us use our horse though the winter. My best riding is winter but I have to deal with alot of ice. I run the groomed packed snowmobile trails and some of the sections are slick ice. Properly studded a horse can lope safely over glare ice.
    I was actually barefoot right up until this snow storm hit us a few days ago. Then on goes the shoes, the studs and the rim pads. I will pull the shoes come spring, run barefoot until bug season and then on go the shoes and I run roads until fall when once agian off come the shoes.
    Wear and traction are my reason for shoing. Shoing was invented for the wear on war ponies not so some farrier could make money.

    Cooking spray, vaseline or WD-40 all work but only for a short time. They do not work good enough to put on once a day and forget about it.

    Either pull your boys shoes for the winter or get him snow pads so he does not get those nasty snow balls.
