  1. Flip Flop Shoe - Not Half Shoe

    I got more info and the shoe the farrier suggested for my horse and feels is a good shoe for many horses, is called a Flip-Flop shoe. The farrier cuts the metal shoe just after the last nail near the heel and nails the Flip-Flop pad underneath, the plastic pad is about 3/8" thick and provides support to the heel, but is loose, like a flip flop. Said that dirt and stones don't get stuck there, they slide in and out and that shouldb't be a problem. He says it offers good support and that we should be able to go well in this shoe. The farrier supply company said they are usually used on standard bred horses. Our vet is pretty progressive and always looking at new options. I think we are going to try it. It will definitely help so my gelding so he doesn't get another shoe boil. Anyone have any experience or thoughts to share?
