What do you do when your horse comes in from the pasture with a loose shoe? You might be tempted to leave it alone and hope that it stays put until your farrier can make a trip out to your farm, but this leaves your horse at risk of hoof injury. The shoe might pull off, taking a big chunk of hoof wall with it. It could also come loose and twist, causing your horse to step on the nails and suffer a puncture wound in his sole.

Great video! It’s helpful to see an experienced farrier working with a live horse, rather than just reading instructions or seeing a list of steps to follow. This is a good educational tool for any horse owner to watch.
Good advice. If you don’t remove the shoe, the consequences can be painful and expensive.
Nice to have a farrier for a husband, but when he’s not around, I do this.
