honestly...if sn owner/client asked me to put wedges on a hoof that wasnt clubbed or padding on a hoof that did not need it due to soundness issues...id tell said person to find a new farrier..as i aint going to risk a horses health to make a human happy.

Only the weight of the package and the overall length of toe and shoeing package together is regulated, according to breed standards . TWH big lick horses are allowed to be heavier and longer than the arabians for example. Soring IS outlawed but chains are not as long as they don't sore the horse.
Just for the record, I have never done any 'long footed' arabians or stacked weighted gaited horses, and never will . It goes totally against my ethics.

Dreamcatcher those look a little too long for the Arabian rules. Do you know was it an arab or another breed ? I thought Arabian limit was 4" of actual toe and another half that for the shoeing, maybe this one just makes it under the wire?.

And worse yet is when you find somthing like a large metal ball bearing or a golf ball placed between the top pad and foot on a TWH. To make him sore in the forefeet.
Those people should go to jail for that. And yes it still happens occasionally but more are getting caught and prosecuted. . Thank goodness.

Patty I know it was an Arab, don't have a clue how long the toe actually is. I have never had anything to do with Saddleseat stuff, so ......... ????
