We send a 3yr old off to be broken. We asked them not to clip him or pull his tail as he will be turned away unrugged when he gets home.
He came home today, with a bib clip-nearly grown out though, and 4 shoes on!!
Now they did tell us about the clip and the fact he was been rugged day and night but not about the shoes. Why he needed them I don't no but now we have a 3yr old we want to turn away with 4 bl**dy shoes on!
I don't no anyone that shoes 3yr olds specially not ones that are just broken and going to be turned away.

Annoying but not the end of the world. As you say the clip has pretty much grown out and its easy enough to remove the shoes.
My 3yo had fronts put on as he was feeling the stony path a bit. They came off again today as he is being turned away for the winter.

When we can get the farrier out, but we are going to be charged for shoes we didn't want on in the first place. And it means we can't turn him out with anything just incase he boots them.

Actually I think it IS A BIG DEAL! I would not send my youngsters away at all and this is just a prime example of why not. Saying that, considering you made your wishes clear it is totally unacceptable.

Not really, they have only been on 2 weeks. Loose shoes I can do, but not fully fixed ones.

Have they explained why they did all that? Bit of a cheek when you specifically asked them not to! Are you happy with the way they've broken him in? You just wonder why they would go to the bother of shoeing, clipping and rugging when they knew he was being turned away when he was returned to you? I'm puzzled!

Very happy with the actual breaking of him, he is going better than we thought he would.
Their answer was they always do, with all of the horses.
They also cut all of his whiskers off, including the ones by his eyes and clipped his ears out

I hate that and they knew it.

I think I'd be really p'd off. And I wouldn't pay for shoes if I'd specifically asked for the horse not to be shod. One of mine went away for bringing on and I told them she wasn't to be clipped, shod or trimmed. The guy looked at me as if I was mad and said he wouldn't dream of doing any of that without checking with the owner first.
