After the dirtbikes
Talking about the bikes LOL
Failed pose because the sun was in the wrong spot!
And LOVE this pic...made it my profile picture on FB!
Everything's melting/melted around here so the roads are the only safe, dry footing available...just walking and limited trotting, but it's nice to keep her going in the wet season. I think I'm going to look into getting her shod for the summer. I know MANY of the posters here have shod horses, what are the benefits/downfalls? I don't have a barn, she's outside 24/7, there is mud around so I'm aware she may occasionally pull a shoe...but what kinds of things should I be watching out for? She won't be getting shod til end of April so I have time to really think on it...but she doesn't have strong feet, being a TB/Clydie. Her walls are thin, she's prone to deep cracks, and we'll be doing a bit of road riding and trails. Again, mostly walk and trot, but it's still hard on the tootsies. Any advice or personal experience with shoes would be appreciated!
Here's a pic of her feet after a fresh trim by my farrier
