The Bent Shoe Syndrome

I had one horse last year who HAD to wear bar shoes...he ended up wearing oversize
bell boots during the entire time.  He now is back to regular shoes, but the bell
boot had to be trashed.....

In cleaing up my pasture every year, we add bent shoes to our collection.  Maybe
they'll be worth something someday.......
