      •  thank you - i was not meaning to criticise you (0+ / 0-)

        as much as the experience and the reading of the data presented.

        i have great confidence in new bolton - they are an amazing institution!

        btw, how did you go from barefoot farrier to judging or vice versa?

        my boys (now boy) have been barefoot their entire lives. i've had farriers tell me if i tried to get them to put a nail in their feet, i'd have to find another farrier to do so because they would not.  over 1/2 inch white line, solid feet that wore perfectly to the correct angle.  love barefootin'

        if the horse's feet can take it, i recommend everyone at least TRY to take the shoes off (unless they have a physical issue that requires shoeing - think thoroughbred feet).

    •  Oh, and ridicule my work all you like (0+ / 0-)

      but the 'gods' like Dr. Soule give up on and discard horses with problems like Super HIt's all the time - I'm the one that gets them as a last ditch effort, and more often than not brings them back to a useful life. SH is lucky in that Norris seems able to pay for his upkeep (she probably got paid off by Romney) and if I was anywhere near that area I would look her up and offer to have a look. I've rehabbed what is probably far worse.
