I need help with an issue with my barefoot mustang, but I don't want to start a BF vs. shoes trainwreck. Would anyone be willing to PM with me and look at a picture and offer some advice?
I asked my farrier about it yesterday and his answer was basically "this is a reason people typically put shoes on" and I'm wondering if there are other options, as I don't want to put shoes on this horse if I don't have to.
Send me a PM if you are interested.
Or, are there any barefoot forums where I could seek advice?
Nowhere did I say that I would NOT put shoes on my horse IF he needs them. I said I DON'T WANT to if there are other options. Some horses need shoes, some horses don't. At various times in my herd I have had all my horses barefoot and all my horses shod, and everywhere in between. I do not think there is one concrete answer to all problems, which is why I'm seeking other opinions. I know what the farrier's answer is to the situation - I'm interested to hear what the barefoot answer would be.
Appsolute, I sent you a PM - can you get it? Go to the upper right hand corner of your screen and it should read "notifications." Then if you click on it it should say "1 unread private message" or something like that - that's how you get to your inbox.
Thank you to everyone who is PM-ing me - I appreciate the feedback!
