I'm sorry, but I find it hilarious to think that not shoeing a horse is
going to be responsible for every little thing good that happens. They
excrete toxins better, make your horse sweat less, and now ripping the ol'
shoes off makes the flies stay away! What is next? Taking shoes off will
make him trailer load better or make him smarter? I'm not attacking you, but
don't we think these claims are getting a wee bit preposterous? That seems
pretty far fetched as do most of these claims and I own a barefoot horse.
There ain't a darned difference in the two except the barefoot mare gets
ouchy after a couple hours riding in the sharp rocks.
