Notes: PJ's First Edition is a 12 year old APHA?PTHA gelding. Scooter has had professional training and has been shown successfully in Western and English. Scooter has very nice smooth gaits and transitions, he is an excellent trail horse and has experienced in trail competition. He would make a great 4-H project or show horse for a youth or adult rider. This is a nice gelding that could take you to the next level. Won't last long at this price!

He's a nice looking horse but I have a question. What is the deal with the shoes on his fronts. Are those pads or egg-bar shoes (or a combination of both) and if so, what is the reason for that?
Can't tell you much about the shoes other than they are alum. I do know he wears no pads and is barefoot right now. Scooter is a friends horse at the stables, just helping out by posting for her.
I too wonder about the fronts. In the first pic his ankle is forward as often happens with a horse with heel pain. His toes appear to be landing first. Normally when a horse walks he flips his hoof forward then lands on his heel. It is almost imperceptible. That said, when horses walk very slowly they may land toe first.
If one were to catch it in slow motion one would see that the heel touches down first. That is why I said it is almost imperceptible. I have seen this on film only when the horse was walking. The horse was barefoot and sound. It was showing a comparison between a sound hoof and one with caudal heel pain.
Adding a link to some video from a few days ago.
