    I agree with it. I don't think one month will hurt in any way, but he'll grow some back. I don't know how much he took off, but I know for sure SOME does take a lot, so horse can go sore. They won't become "soft" or something in one month anyway.

    P.S. It is weird the farrier didn't question what's going on. My farrier knows 100% what to do with my own horses (he's actually against shoeing unless it's absolutely necessary). May be changing farrier will be also a good idea!

    Well I saw the farrier at a horse show and he says it's not his fault *sigh*
    I moved over to Bozeman yesturday so it looks like the shoes are going to be on until I find someone to pull them.. The only barefoot farrier I know of trimmed Diesel's feet once and he was sore for a month.
    It's extremely frustrating and I don't know what the farriers deal is.

    I would call the farrier and find out if there was a reason for shoeing him. If he says that whomever took care of it authorized for it I would ask them to pay me at least some of the shoeing. Next time I would call the farrier in advance and get the total and put that on the check ASAP

    I've found that normal, educated farriers are the best for barefoot trimming too. Most of them thinks barefoot is good as long as the horse can work with that.

    But this is in sweden perhaps our farrier education are different or something.
