With flat, hilly grasslands is your barefoot or shod horse up to the task? Proper horse hoof care in Iowa is important. A qualified farrier is your answer to all of your horse hoof needs and can provide expert advice.
In Iowa, farriers must carefully evaluate the horse’s conformation, gait, and hoof balance when determining what adjustments to make. Some farriers specialize in corrective trimming and shoeing of young, growing horses. They may use epoxy, resin, and glue-on shoes to change the angle of the foot and lower limbs to promote correct growth.
