My name is Will and this is my first post here on this forum.
We (my wife and I) live in the middle of British Columbia, Canada and we are working on our idea/dream to crisscross Canada, (make it a ten year during trip as we think now) with a team of draft (draught) horses pulling a modified caravan. We are in our mid fifties now and hope to get going when I hit early sixty.
Anyway, that is the story in short.
Now, obviously I have a question about boots and/or glue on shoes.
I'm not a farrier nor do I have the training for it. (So, think about this when you answer my question or comment about it)
The reason I would like to know more about these things is that I think using either one of these type of footwear instead of the nailed on shoes, would be handier and maybe even better in the long run.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not against shoeing, (hot or cold) of horses. I've worked with drafts back in the day when I was a few years younger (lol) so I'm not one of the few that think it hurts a horse when you nail the shoes on.
Anyway, to come back to the reason I'm posting this, is there anyone that have any experience with the "take-on/take-off" boots or the ones you can glue on?
What I would like to know how durable either one of them would be with our little trip in mind.
