RE: [RC] [RC] Re:RC What Shoes Really Do - Katrina Mosshammer

Exactly! Kind of a " I won't tell you HAVE TO wear shoes, if you don't tell me I HAVE TO go barefoot." thing. Just do your own thing and don't let anybody tell you you have to do it their way.

Subject: Re: [RC] [RC] Re:RC What Shoes Really Do

I have to echo what a lot of people are saying that there is a balance to everything including this conversation. The longer you can leave a horse barefoot, especially when they are young the better off you will be. Too many shoes too young can weaken the hoof wall and make it difficult for them to be barefoot in the future. But, there are often times when shoes can make the difference between a horse with a minor problem and corrected to a horse going lame from lack of care. We all want the best for our friends and so we scour the internet, books, magazines, etc... for all of the information that we can. The problem is that there are as many opinions as horses and the only thing that I know to do is to take all of it with a grain of salt, use trial and error, a little common sense and most importantly be open to new ideas.
