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!
