Four Paso Finos share my digs, ranging in age from 9 to 23 as of this writing (early 2006). We've gone through some founder here a few years back, which helped me develop a protocol that's effective, relatively quick-recovery, and easy to administer; it involves appropriate trimming and strict diet control. I developed the LIM Trim (Less Is More) which evolved into an excellent counter-FFS (Forward Foot Syndrome) trim. I run a barefoot Forum on Yahoo!Groups entitled "barefoothorsecare", and I'm associated with Natural Horse Magazine. (01/06)
