I really like your work.
I have been an admirer for quite sometime!
I am currently a Sr. Producer at the University of Chicago, before that I was a video game producer for Vivendi Universal Games/Activision for 4 years (HD capture from XBox360, PS3, Wii and PC’s).
I hope to hear back from you in the near future.
How would you suggest to tackle my problem. After having a child I am terrified of getting on and cant do it. I have a new horse whom is green so not a good combo. He is a big boy Percheron x and has had little training at all. All people around are all NH people, we are new to area so do not know any one. Do you have any advise on how I should approach this. I just want to ride, I use to ride 6 days a week rain hail shine for 45 – 1 hr( just riding) I so badly want to ride but I have lost my nerve big time and it is really giving me the Sh&%$ but I cant get past it. I love this horse so dont want to get another. Do you have a confidence suggestions. Our own property so dont have any other riders here.
RE: Barefoot Trimming
This is not the latest fad. It has been around for quite some time. To get your facts straight about a “one size fits all” barefoot trim, perhaps you should check out books by Jaime Jackson and Pete Ramey. I have 2 OTTB that will never wear shoes again. Since they have had them pulled over a year ago, their hoofs have turned to granite, they can run on any terrain and are never foot sore. What we know now as wild mustangs weren’t dropped off by the spanish and native americans in the high desert country. They migrated there. What we view as barren, rocky land is actually the area where they knew they could thrive-even barefoot.
heya there! just to leave a lil suggestion for u to look a bit further into the barefoot thing. Shoes have their place yes, but now that there are finally hoofboots that don’t fall off, don’t rub and can be put on in 5 seconds, those cases are no longer present. Anyway, Dr. Strasser is in fact blindfolded like any other fellow vet I’ve known in my short carreer, the only difference is she is blinded by her own method instead of the one in traditional books. If you look into Pete Ramey’s work for instance, you’ll see a major diference, the guy used to be a farrier and still is when the ownwer won’t cooperate. However, with a 2 brain celled owner, he can get any horse going fine barefoot BECAUSE he doesn’t treat no 2 horses the same and is always willing to admit he did somethin wrong. All this babbling set aside, I’ve been following my own knolage of anatomy and phisiology and am certain anything you do to decrease the weightbearing surface of anything that lives under the effects of gravity, will be detrimental. Shoes are loads less problematic on horses goind on ground that digs in because of that alone: the sole and frog do manage to share the load that way. You don’t see the difference? well, go on your high heels every day all your life and brag that you can do anything a man does but on high heels! that’s awsome! but when u get old, don’t be surprised my feet are still as sleek and pain free as when I was young and yours are full of arthrosis…
I really enjoyed your site, the content was unique, hoping for more awesome updates in the future
I found your website/comments are really interesting – It’s good to see a different point of view even if it’s one I don’t share.
