I'd love to keep him barefoot like he has been since I got him, but will re-assess this spring and maybe get another set of xrays on his front legs to make sure the sole of his foot isn't dangerously thin anymore.
Biotin is only one of many nutrients needed for healthy feet. They need the whole 'recipe' - can't make a cake with nothing but raising agent!
Some 'food for thought'... Conventional shoes aren't the only(or the best IMO) thing for protecting feet and being only just 6yo & having problems I'd be more reluctant to shoe him ATM. And unless your farrier is working in conjunction with a good bodyworker - vet chiro or such, 'correcting' a clubbed foot is not generally advisable.
