Farriers in Michigan can get you on the right path to healthy horse hoof care. “No hoof, no horse” is a true statement, so contact a farrier near you. Michigan has a variety of seasonal and topographic changes during the year, so you’ll want to keep your horse’s hooves in top riding condition with the care of a professional farrier.
Horse hoof care in Michigan may be different in the winter months. Your farrier may recommend that he pull the horse’s shoes. This may depend on the terrain where the horse is kept and the overall health of the hooves. Allowing your horse to be barefoot will give the hooves some time to thicken, to permit for heel expansion, and to increase the circulation within the hoof capsule.
