We took Windy and Fancy over to the farrier’s the other night for their shoes. We don’t normally shoe unless we are planning to ride some rocky rides, but with all the road riding we have been doing, I just decided to shoe them now. Fancy is a bit upright in the pasterns so this gave him an opportunity to help right that situation.
Before we go on vacation this summer, I am pondering having them shod with these urethane horse shoes. I would think this would provide some shock absorbency against the percussion when traveling down our hard gravel roads if not some degree of traction when riding on rock. They are pricey compared to normal shoes ($9.50 per shoe) but where I don’t keep the horses shod all year around, it won’t set me back too much. Have any of you tried these?
I had a note from the marketing of Boot Stroot asking if I would be interested in trying their product and reviewing it on my web. Boot Stroot is used to hold your jeans in place when putting boots or 1/2 chaps over your jeans. I have been wearing breeches this winter so haven’t had the opportunity to try these with jeans but will shortly. Stay tuned.
Now if Plastichorseshoes.com would just contact me and ask if I would try their product in exchange for a review.
Or Ariat boots.
Or Wrangler Q-Babys.
