𝐀𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐚𝐲𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐠𝐨𝐞𝐬 ’𝐍𝐨 𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐟, 𝐧𝐨 𝐡𝐨𝐫𝐬𝐞’… Or if the horse pulls off all his hoof, we need to make a replacement? ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ You may have seen on my stories recently, Boyce has managed to pull off 4 shoes in 3 weeks. Which is a new record for him! So this has left him with very little hoof to nail the shoes onto. After reviewing several options with my farrier we have gone for filler in his feet, with a mixture of Kevlar (which is the material used to make bullet proof vests), a setting agent and some super glue! He has filler on 3 feet, left fore is currently going strong (my current favourite limb 🤣). Hopefully this will keep the shoes securely on his feet and allow new hoof growth to nail into in the future🤞🤞🤞.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ My farrier Tom is amazing! Especially over the last few weeks with Boyce taking shoes off left right and centre, plus with this current situation, he certainly has been a lockdown superstar for us! #teamshayler #eventerproblems #eventinglife #eventer #equestrain #equestrainlife #farrier #equestrainblogger #nohoofnohorse #farriersofinstagram #horseshoe #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #hoof
