OMG. If I had a draft horse with feathers, they would totally be in pony tails all the time. :)

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ~ William Shakespeare

Duct tape will pull out only loose hairs. Use the regular duct tape not the foil tape.

No one I've ever worked for has bothered putting them out of my way & it's never really bothered me, except in taking hoof pics, where all you see is hair!

Some info I've found helpful; [COLOR=Lime][B]www.horseforum.com/horse-health/hoof-lameness-info-horse-owners-89836/
