I had to buy my horse some protective boots. :wall-an: The Farrier made a mistake and trimmed him too close. which means that the sensitive part of his sole was exposed. the shoes had to come off and he was in a lot of pain just walking. Add in hard ground and ice and it gets much worse. So I went and bought these:

they protect the sole and add a cusion. sort of like special runner shoes. And cost the same: $200 :eek:

But this makes it worth it:
