So I just had the farrier out for my haflinger gelding.... My gelding has not ever had great feet (a common haflinger trait), but what he told me isn't great. So my gelding has worn most of the bottom of his feet (fronts especially) off... He is clearly uncomfortable on any sort of rock, and is only comfortable on soft surfaces. ***Background information***-He'd been at my mother's house for the past 4 yrs, on basically no rock or super rough surface, and had been on grass 98% of the time. He only received trims, and wasn't being ridden. In August I moved him to a barn with a 8 acre pasture (grassy with a few rocky areas, but is by no means it's not like he's been totally shifted in environment standards.) I've been doing the hunter pace trail at the barn 2-3 times a week, with the occasional ride in the arena thrown in there. So my gelding is uncomfortable and I want to fix it. I am going to have another farrier out this week to get a second opinion... I'm also in the process of switching anyways. He says there's not enough hoof to nail a shoe to, and when my gelding had them in the past he often threw them. He also proposed glue on shoes, and just boots to help his hooves stay protected yet still grow out... I'm looking for any and all recommendations-boot brands, hoof supplements, shoeing, and anything else that could help. Thanks everyone!
