Re: [RC] Shoes vs. Boots for Road Work - Maggie Mieske

My husband is a farrier.  One of our firends/clients has had great success
with Old Macs boots.  We are pretty impressed with them and I have a couple
of horses we'd like to try them on.  (I think there are some other folks on
RC who have tried them.)  I know they sell them on their webpage which I
think is www.horsevillage.com.  If that's not it, let me know and I'll
double check it.  Where are you located?  I don't recognize your name.  We
get down in that area sometimes and maybe we could meet for coffee sometime.
Let me know.  As a side note...if she doesn't NEED shoes, then let her go
barefoot.  I ride my stallion all over the gravel roads in the spring until
it's almost ride time and then I (or rather Nelson) put shoes on.  He's
never ouchy.  Depends on the horse.
P.S.  Are you a member of GLDRA yet?  That'll get you lots of good Michigan
info on rides, etc.
