Get some bling on them shoes! *Buying a new pair of horse shoes.*

Ok well I saw a pair of these at a show I went to and thought they were neat. After talking to the owner I really want to try a pair on Sona. I'm retraining her so she has been under more streinious (SP?) work. So any way here thay are.

Happy Hoofwear

I think I saw a post on here before. I also think I made a comment on it to. :P

So any way what color should I choose? I might just go with clear or black but that's no fun.

What are the benefits of these versus traditional metal shoes? My greatest fear would be that these can't be molded to the horse's foot at all; they either fit, or they don't... and my guess is they don't fit more than they do fit.

I like that it expands and cotracts with the hoof. They weigh the same as a metal shoe, andcost just about the same. You also have contol on the brake over point on the shoe. The lady that I talked to he horse had foundered and she said that she shoes made a big diffrence.

You shape them with nippers. They are working on other sizes.

These vids talk about putting the shoes on and fitting them.

It'd be funny and kinda cool if you could get a different color for each hoof.

It's a wonderful idea in theory, especially for people who do a lot of riding on roads or concrete, but I share the same concerns as Allie. They cannot be bent to provide support or correction where the individual horse needs it, it would basically be the same as a farrier taking a metal shoe out of the box, nailing it on, and rasping the hoof to fit. And after watching their slide show, it shows. There are many horses pictured there that have a significant amount of 'shoe' hanging out past the side of their hoof or behind it (a perfect place to get stepped on by a hind foot and pulled off) and a couple who appear to be wearing shoes that are too small for their foot.

Well with her next few trims I'm going to use plain old metal but after a while I might switch to try them out.

Is it just me, or they seem thicker/taller than regular shoes?

I have to agree, there seems to be a lot of pictures of horses with them on that look like they are just not fitted right. I think a metal shoe would be a better bet unless their is some medical reason that your horse needs something like that.
