Our TB has usual rubbish feet but, had improved a lot since we bought him, in past 2 weeks he has pulled off the same shoe 4 times!!, pulled it backwards so the toe clip digs into the hoof and rotated to the side so the nails are sticking out. He is now on box rest with a very sore foot, he has over reach boots on 24/7 and leg bandages, he is close in front but, doesnt brush, is not shod on back, I think that he is standing on the shoe itself and then pulling it. Problem is that the hoof is now bad, with cracks and lumps missing due to trauma. Daughter wants to try barefoot but, I cant see that possible, long walk down track to field, and very very low collapsed heels and flat feet. Also, we are suposed to be bringing him back into work after his 6 month turnaway after his facial fractures so, cant really afford to allow 'time' for feet to harden etc for barefoot. But, I am at the end of my tether, can anyone else suggest what to do or if their horses do the same thing?
