    [RC] bare feet - Brenda L. Kossowan

    Hi gang: I would like to hear some comments from veterinarians and
    farriers regarding barefoot horses. We have a farrier in our area who
    has started using the methods and reporting good results. However, I
    would like to see an objective analysis of this approach - if that's
    possible. Certainly, in long distance competition, a healthy foot is the
    fulcrum upon which all other factors swing. I remember riding miles and
    miles on barefoot horses when I was a kid - and I don't think they were
    any tougher, although I was certainly 40 or 50 pounds lighter. :)
