 However, nature designed this expansion to accomodate a non-weight bearing  horse who walks/grazes 97% of the time, for usually no more than 20 miles per day in the wild. Add my 240 lbs of saddle, bones and liquor fat, increase the speed to 8-9 mph for 50 to 100 miles, and the increased expansion/contraction of those feet can make him sore.
however.....lets not forget mares in the wild....who are bred and carrying the extra weight of a foal every year...what is the weight of a foal?  Those mares are keeping up with the herd while pregnant.....
