Hi - has anyone used wood pellet bedding (e.g. Verdo) with an ushod horse?
He has been unshod for about a year following an operation (farrier is trimming and will put shoes back on if needed) and while he was in a different field, further away down a track, he was picking up a lot of grit between his hoof walls. I just wondered if the wood pellets also tend to get caught up in the hoof?
Some friends have it and it seems brilliant but all their horses are shod.
