    Great article!

    oh, and when you get your tools, get some gloves, too. No need for battle scars

    One of my favorite sites on hooftrimming is Bare Foot Horse

    Belle currently would fit a size #6 Easyboot Epic. Waiting a week or so to see if her hooves spread out after shoes being removed.

    They were in decent shape for shod hooves. So you know we need pics of the barefoot beauties

    Yes, they were MUCH better than expected, after the shoes finally came off...NOT an easy job. The laminae looked pretty in tack. Only one small area at the toe with a little fungal pocket. Found a little area where the sole was growing around a piece of gravel. Frogs in decent shape...could be much worse.
    It was only the past few months that I started to notice the heel bulbs starting to pinch. Toe was waaaaaaaaaaay long. I got before pics (not very good ones), but forgot afters with all the commotion. I'll get some.

    The ex farrier did a pretty good job on that horrendous crack, tho. See how she" rolled" the toe of the shoe? My old farrier told me 25 years ago already that a horse shouldn't have to do that and worked the break over in the shoe. I guess he was way ahead of time..... He also did a pasture trim that was pretty close to a" modern" barefoot trim.

    Actually????.....No....her shoe was not made with the rocker toe....Belle created it from walking toe first. Her shoe was the same thickness all the way around. A friend and I were just talking about that today when we were looking at it ourselves.....paper thin worn out in front.

    However, this farrier did the best of anyone around here and I was quite happy with it, for shoes.

    You can look at the pictures on the beginning of this threat, they show the shoe the day he shod her. The crack was healed by the time we moved down here.
