Shoes are off...at least two of them.
All year I've been debating whether to take my horse's shoes off. I've heard plenty of thoughts on both sides including the cliche stuff like "TBs can't go shoeless". While I really wanted to pull them all, I decided not to fix something that wasn't broken. I had the farrier pull the back two and left the front two on. I figure if the backs go well, I'll try the fronts at a later date. This horse is very short strides behind until he's well warmed up. I'm hoping the added leg circulation back there will help him use himself better. Fingers crossed!
