The barefoot booted horse phenomenon is international! This video from France gives more reinforcement to the debate on why going barefoot is better.
This video is from "La tete au Carre", a French radio scientific documentary on four reasons why horses should not be shod. This report is amazing – their study found that the life expectancy of a shod horse is half that of an unshod horse. Think about this: the horse is the only animal into which we pound nails into!
Note: at the 1:04" point in the video, the translated voice-over talks about ‘nails’ when they are actually talking about ‘hooves’.
