Re: One of my barefoot experiences


ABSOLUTELY!!!  Frankly, I think that EVERY horse owner really has a duty to learn as quickly as possible what a well trimmed and/or well shod foot looks like, right along with basic veterinary care, what symptoms warrent immediate call to the vet, and so on.

I hope that this list can help more horse owners in what you have learned.  Through our escapades here in NH, a few horse owners have begun to recognize what the foot should look like, how to ask good questions about a proposed trim as well as about a practitioner’s credentials. They don’t want to do the actual work, but they know how to ask good questions and give good input.  Like educated patients in human medicine, educated horse owners can only help to advance good diagnosis, nutrition and foot care. All the good stuff!!
