Barefoot is the most natural and healthy state for horses’ hooves. However, modern equine management and associated hoof weaknesses has meant that a perfectly healthy and well-shaped horse hoof is extremely difficult to achieve and keep, until now!
Nail holes, especially old ones, weaken the hoof wall and are an open door for bacterial migration which can impact future hoof health immensely. The images above show a healthy natural wall (barefoot or non-invasive) in comparison to a wall which has clear signs of damage around the nail holes.
