Danny has shoes front and back to keep his feet from chipping. I'm not thrilled about it by any means! Just talked to the farrier and found out that my visits will now cost $140! :shock::shock::shock: He thinks Danny can go barefoot at least in the back if we have him on good footing and his digestion supplements help him break down the nutrients in his food better. I'm also going to start using Keratex (sp?) on his feet to harden them up. Does anyone else have good suggestions to help harden his feet? Sadly, he can't be turned out with the herd while he has back shoes on . Thankfully, my BO has her retired gelding out with him so he's not getting lonely...
