    Lame from shoeing

    I was asked as a farrier in the Caribbean to remove a shoe from a horse that was laming. On removing the shoe found that the farrier filed the hoof close to the white line and drove the nail on the inside of the white line causing the horse to lame. I don't see anyway that I can put on the shoe without causing the horse the horse to lame. Not sure if I can re-shoe the horse. What do you recommend I do?

    Without seeing photos of how close it is, I don't know that anyone can advise you. Can the horse be barefoot for a while as it grows out?

    I don't have any photos at this time. One side is cut to the white line and the nails were on the inside the other side is ok. I cleaned the foot and put on a boot and hope for it to grow down so the shoes can go on.

    You can boot, or have a competent farrier use a glue on shoe.

    We don't have glue on shoes in Antigua. Its a small Caribbean island with only a small amount of horses. I will have to try and source a set of glue on shoes but it might take a while for the shoe to get here.
