Do you have a shod horse that seems sound to you and still wonder why you should change now?
Consider theses statistics below from the American Farriers Journal of Nov .2002, V26 #6 p5. Quote:
"Of the 122 million equines found around the world, no more than 10 percent are clinically sound.
Some ten percent (12.1 million) are clinically, completely and unusably lame.
The remaining 80 percent (97.6 million) are somewhat lame and could not pass a soundness evaluation test".
