Informational Barefoot Websites And More!

Recommended Posts

Can we please sticky this mods? Would be GREATLY helpful.

Please post any and all barefoot informational websites/ links to pertinant articals/ supplies/ case studies you can think of. Ill add them all to the top post and sort them if we get enough to need that. Also it would be good to have a few farrier supply sites. I dont think that conflicts with HC in any way and would be helpful as well to let us know the cheapest and best places to get things we need, medications, rasps, boots etc. Id like to put this all in one post.

TIA!

Very good link VM! I know I have left out a ton of things.

So comeon guys! Where are all the hoof board folks? You all know this will be SOO helpful instead of posting the same things over and over and over again not to mention a quick reference and easy accessinfo for newcommers...

Missy? Jumpin? anyone?

Great idea! I will try to send some along, but they need to be checked out and possibly approved first, before you decide if they are worthy or not. Some of these are articles. Hope this helps! [bat Eyelashes]

What's interesting is that I've looked at that site before, but it all seemed sort of over my head, until i took those hoof pictures the other day. There are several case studies on there with pretty much identical problems to the ones that we're seeing in a couple of the ponies. So thanks for posting these, going back there THIS time was WAY more educational than when I just stopped in for no reason. :)

On www.aanhcp.net, there is a page called News & Articles and it has a lot of really great information.

The AANHCP also has a facebook page (so does Paddock Paradise too - and it is run by Jaime Jackson).

Another site is :-D wwww.barefootbliss.org. It is where I got my name for here. It is also about Jaime Jackson.

I have a QH breed for western pleasure showing ( her sire is zip chocolate zip) she did awesome but soon after showing she became sore and her show career was over and she became just one of the horses (happy now). the question is I had a barefoot specialist doing her feet as my other 2 tenn walker . Emily(QH) has long toe low heel horse and have thin sole. do you know anyone I can contact on questions on what to do with her feet and help keep her sound. cleave wells trained her, he cut her tongue, she has scars from his awful training(before we got her) I need someone who really knows problem feet and maybe give me suggestion to tell my farrier. don't have a clue how to show a picture on is web sight. couldn't find the picture of her feet.
