I have had a discussion with my english friend in Tunisia what is best for the horses in sand: horse shoes yes or no?
In the sand are many little rocks, like little very mean pieces of stone wich can do harm.
In summertime however the sand can be very hot and iron gets hot too.
I already feel guilty when I feel the iron gets hot in my horse's mouth, but where temperature is controlled and moist.
I do not have any experience in this, but my feeling says no. Any one any advice?
