Re: Shoe wear vs. miles ridden

    Thanks Vickie for taking the time to share this with me.  I have heard 
and seen people do this process.  One of the things that I find is, that if 
your riding your horse a lot then the demand for growth seems to increase.  
So our horses have good growth in about 5 weeks.  Or so it seems... 
    But, I really don't like my horses to go much longer than 5 weeks.  I 
like to keep their feet about the same in length and size as much as 
possible.  I find that longer, then shorter lengths, are a stress factor.  My 
son, Levi Robinson is our farrier and so it is not a problem for getting him 
to do Mom & Dads horses :o)
    Since we do (haven't much this year with new ranch and all) a lot of 
100's and multiday rides we foam on Easyboots over shoes anyway.  Been doing 
this now about 3 - 4 years on the same horses.  So this also is a way to 
prevent wear during longer events.
    Thank you again for you thoughts!
