To Shoe or Not to Shoe
Originally posted by ILoveJoe

Neither of my horses have ever had shoes on their feet. I haven't been happy with the durability of their hooves in between trims lately and I am educating myself on Natural Hoof Care.

Currently reading Jackson book and I hope to have both his and Rameys done by next Wednesday so I can talk intelligently about this to my farrier. Both Joe and Rocky's feet are a mess and Joe's started chipping and breaking 2 weeks after his last trim.

Thanks for the link!

Although both books cover the same subject I think Pete Ramey has done a better job of adaption of the Natural Trim to how we keep our horses today. I really like his philosophy and explanations and it works for me.

"The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. " Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
