Our gelding had a period of time that NO ONE could shoe him and could barely trim his front hooves. Let's not talk about the back ones.
We bought the boots that you mention and they lasted.... ohhhh. 4 easy short rides.
We worked on correcting Chican's problem and can get shoes on his front with no problem. The back? Gets trimmed and that's it. But our guy is good and KNOWS NOT TO TRIM to much off.
Keep in mind that for thousands of years.... horses didn't have shoes. (ours are done every 6 weeks with the exception above and no problems.)
