Does your horse need hoof care in Alaska? There is a farrier near you that can help. Freezing temperatures and rugged terrain will require a farrier’s expertise to balance and properly equip your equine’s foot.
Alaska farriers may tell you there are three basic reasons to shoe a horse: to protect the foot, to address traction issues, and to alter or enhance the gait. If you are trying to decide if your equine should be barefoot or shod, discuss this with your farrier.
