New "shoes"!

Limerick has new shoes now! Except they aren't your standard horseshoes--they're something radically different. If you think of standard horseshoes as steel toe construction boots, then the Perfect Hoof Wear would be comparable to very thin sneakers, or even the minimalist running shoes I use.

How long they last is up to the individual horse, but whether they stay on for 2-3 weeks or 6 weeks, they will give Lim's weak-walled front hooves a chance to strengthen and grow properly.

This also means that I can ride her over Labor Day weekend--yay!
