Plastic slip-on hooves for horses

2 posts in this topic

A revolutionary slip-on plastic coated hoof that doubles as an equine fashion accessory could spell the end for nailing on horseshoes.

An equestrian designer came up with the 'GluShu', which uses a traditional metal horseshoe that is coated in a durable thick plastic covering and glued to the animal's foot rather than nailed.

The coating offers the horse more cushioning and offers an easier alternative to the traditional method of fitting shoes.

I've printed off a copy to show Tony the farrier when he calls next. It'll make his day!!! (Better not let the granddaughters see it though, otherwise there's no telling what the ponies could end up looking like!
