If your horse doesn't need them, then go with out! I wish my horse could be bare foot. He's a QH and has terrible feet! He must have 4 shoes, or his feet crumble... its really sad... we can't put the nails in to his hoof because the just come right back out, so we have to "glue" them on and then put this putty in the out side and nail though that. You're a very lucky person to have hoofs that don't nned shoes! Good luck to ya!
