In 2005, we asked a very basic question about our horses: “Why did they need shoes?” In the end, we decided the answer was “They don’t.” For many years, we relied on hoof boots and kept our horses barefoot. In 2017, Rob began shoeing but is now retired from working as a farrier.
Rob is a hoof boot dealer for both Easy Care and Renegades and a stockist for Scoot Boots! If you would like to schedule a boot fitting, Email or call/text (860-884-0110) to schedule an appointment. Check out all of our Equine Products.
Here is a very good article that summarizes what we believe about barefoot horses: http://www.thehorseshoof.com/pdf_articles/BarefootParadigm.pdf.
