New Age Horse Shoes


I've been riding twice recently with a ski instructor pal who puts these boots on her horses' front feet instead of horse shoes. It's a New Age approach. Over the years I've seen a lot of gimmicks with horses.

Got to say these seem perfect for a ski town, because the boots are about as hard to put on a horse with overgrown feet as ski boots are for me to get on right. But her horses seem to be comfortable with them on, even walking on a gravel road for two hours.

Wow, those are classy horse boots!

I saw a documentary about farriers once. I was impressed that the horse stood still for so long while the guy scraped at each hoof.

It seems like a tough life to me, bending over all those horses' feet, but a guy (or gal) can make a pretty good living. They all seem to have short fuses, and if you find a good one you have to baby them along to keep them happy. But then I guess they get stiffed a lot by clients, since they bill after the work's done.

Do these not come in lime yellow?

Linda, I bet they do but I don't know the brand name.

Your blog is exceptionally enlightening. Eating carefully has been hard for individuals nowadays. It's all a result of their bustling calendars, work or absence of concentrate on themselves. As an understudy I should concede that I have not been eating carefully but rather due to this I will begin now. It could help me make the most of my nourishment and time alone. Eating carefully may help me know about sound sustenance and acknowledging nourishment. Kids Shoes Australia
