My boy has had his shoes off for 12 months plus. he is on a low sugar diet, he is trimmed by a equine podiatrist who says he tests at 2-3 all the way round each foot. he is currently on a trial run of prascend as he has raised levels so I have stopped his supplements so that he is just having the prascend I will reintroduce them once the vet has agreed. I hacked him out today for about one hour without his boots on and he was reluctant to move forward unless he was on smooth tarmac or grass, any uneven or gritty surface he was not happy on. Surely by now he should be able to cope with all types of terrain or am I missing something?
