When we got back from our hack the other day, one of Gandalf's shoes was hanging off, he'd pretty much removed it all by himself with one of his hinds......so as Tess's farrier was coming that evening but didn't haave time to re shoe him, I asked him to take them both off.
Today we went for a little hack, here's the map. He was fine on the grass and in the stubble field, a little bit footy on the road and absolutely hated the gravel. Mind you, he hated gravel when he had the shoes on, too......
Took some pics of his feet for reference
We'll just have to see how he gets on. Going to research some hoof boots now.
