So the Chiro came out to the barn the other day and looked at Gunther. She said she won't touch him until I get his feet fixed. They weren't bad, however, they had a chip and are do for a trim in the next week or two.
They should have been done about two-three weeks ago but when the farrier came out he said they looked great and could wait a few more weeks. The Chiro wants me to put front shoes on him to "balance" him out. She said it would take a few months for them to naturally balance themselves out but if I wanted "fast results" then I would get him front shoes.
The dilemma: I wanted to keep him barefoot and I'm afraid that once I put shoes on him it would be alot of trouble down the road if I wanted to take them off. Some people say it's very easy to transition them and others, not so much. The farrier told me that I wouldn't ever have to put shoes on him if his feet stay in the condition they're in.
I know they both know what they're talking about and they have both have so much experience and schooling. I have NO idea! Farriers and Chiros naturally don't get along.
