Default Could this be a Good Mix between shoes and bare foot

I have been looking at this new shoeing protocol for a while
and thought to pose the question.

In my understanding - the bare foot folks don't like:
1. nails in the foot
2. the hard concussion of steel shoes on the feet.
3. the perception of less expansion of the foot.

The New QUIXshoe is not nailed on,
but using a 2 part epoxy, and a mould to pour and shape the shoe.
1. No nails
2. Much less concussion transference
3. Shoe expands with the foot, possibly

Just looking for a couple of thoughts,
even though we haven't seen it close up.
Just thought you might like a look,
even though it is still in the test mode.

Glue on shoes always have their place, and their uses with particular horses for particular reasons. If horse owners were concerned about their particular horse's hooves and demands on their horses rather than following dogmatic religions regarding shoes and shoeing, they would use the system that works best for their particular horse rather than believe everything that is fed to them on an internet website looking to recruit disciples and sell products and videos.

Actually I think they look like they have a better chance at staying on than any other glue on shoe I've seen advertised. But I've never had a problem with standard metal nail on shoes so if it ain't broke, don't fix it. If I had a good reason (and they were available in size gigantic) I'd probably think these were a good option.

Nancy, I think that is so very well put. I like barefoot, but then it is cheaper on the wallet, but saying that I always do what is right for the horse, I am not the one walking around on rough stuff in barefeet.
The new glue on shoes thing would most likely be quite expensive? But to each their own.

As always a single shoe is not for all horses,
and yes I to avoid the product proclaiming that status . . .

Although this protocol is in the test stage,
they are on about 150 horses, to my knowledge,
in a hot humid environment,
Worked daily, including much time in the wash rack,
and the shoes are staying on till the appointed trim and reset time.
6-8 weeks, Check out the removal video.
Of a shoe that was on for 6 weeks

Nope, not for me.

JMO.
I saw the photo's and see hooves elevated way to high off the ground surface for my liking, (Thick) stuff.
Didn't allow for length of heal that I could see. ??

Easy.......ya until a horse doesn't co-operate with the mould and that stuff goes flying into the dirt.........imagine. Set time is quick so I don't see a second chance.

I didn't like the removal. Man that guy is squeezing those nippers.
Snapping off the material like a hard plaster. Jeez louise.
Looks like some of the wall came with it.

So it hardens up and a second look say's oh crap.
How are you going to fix it now?
I can pull a nailed shoe with ease and even re-use the same hole but I don't see it with this stuff. Once removed it's destroyed.

Unsightly nail hole's? Popycock!
This stuff is ugly.

Keep your skills and talents people.
I didn't see any here.

Just to add.
The web site is still active.
All videos of horses walking or racing were pulled for editing.
No display of horses in motion.

Maybe great stuff for injuries or damaged hooves.
So far the demos involved 2 people to apply the stuff.
Most of us won't be able to afford it anyhow.
