MULE FOOTED

Mule footed horses usually fit better than mules. Several orders have been placed for mules using a larger shoe to gain length and trimming the shoe with nippers & rasp to fit. Mule hoof proportions and horses are different. The experiment has worked well on some mules, not so well on others.

PROPERLY SIZING

Precise fitting using nippers, or rasping only the shoe, to fit the hoof allows the shoe to be fit perfectly as an extension of the natural hoof

Check online for detailed picture showing the bottom of the hoof with a red arrow across the widest part of the hoof in millimeters or convert inches to millimeters. Following are approximate inches/millimeter conversions.
110 mm = 4 5/16” 115mm =4 1/2” 120 mm = 4 13/16” 125mm=4 7/8” 130mm=5 1/4” 135mm =5 5/16” 140mm=5 ½” or call (602) 909-3144

Shoes are designed to help solve &/or avoid problems on both front &rear hooves, solving problems from sole to spine of your horse

Horseshoe companies or brands use the 00-0-1-2-3-4, etc., for sizing.
Most brands are different measurements; thus, works only for that specific brand. Metric allows precise measurement across all brands sizing differences & as well as internationally. Please see inches to metric chart on the Products Page.  

Our smallest size is 110mm =4 /16” at widest part of the hoof. This shoe can be placed upon a smaller hoof nipping off the excess & rasping only the shoe to fit. The material matches natural hoof thus, can be drilled to guide nails into the shoe without using the holes provided, being careful to observe the correct nail placement based upon the white line limitation..

NAILS-GLUE-DURABILITY-RESETTING

The holes are designed to lock in #6 City Head.  Recommend #6 Mustad N.A. Clinch blocked firmly into shoe material.  Best Practices - Farriers say "High Nails are Happy Nails."

Yes, Resettable Normally 2+ resets available depending upon terrain

Designed to lock #6 City Head nails into nail holes using clinch block to seat nails firmly into shoe material.  Experiments are currently in progress using VETTEC Super Fast Glue with an update soon on results.  No epoxies to fit.  Only nippers and rasp for a perfect fit.  

Check out the installation videos at Goldenwingshorseshoes.com with shoes removed after 12 weeks due to farrier/owner schedule mix-up, that could have been reset Outlast metal shoes on most terrain.

Shoes stay tight, & tough to remove.  Just as with metal, nails should be clinch blocked firmly into the shoe material, aimed high.  They exit where aimed.  High Nails are Happy Nails.

LAMENESS & HOOF ISSUES

Designed to avoid and correct interference problems, these may be helpful if no underlying problems exist.

Golden Ratio Measuring & Trimming Protocol may correct within 2-3, four-week shoeing cycles to allow the adjustment to natures alignment rather than using artificial wedge adjustment.   

They are an extension of natural hoof, trimmed even with the hoof wall

Probably yes, but make take time to get accustomed to sole support

Shoes are a flexible extension similar to flexible natural hoof.

Exposed frogs interact directly with terrain barefoot, non-exposed frogs are considered to interact with shoes padded or a shoe material placed to avoid direct exposure with terrain. Goldenwingshorseshoes.com are designed for frog exposure directly with terrain, while protecting coffin bone, sole, & overall hoof structure with 14 mm of flexible material similar to natural hoof for shock absorption, & traction.  Do NOT over trim or pare frog excessively.  Allow the frog to do its job.  Only remove frayed or jagged pieces if any.  

Shoe is designed similar to feral hoof traveling over hard terrain, when combined with Golden Ratio Measuring & Trimming tends to avoid tendon, suspensory, ligament, & forging issues, as well as align bone structures, helping to quicken & lengthen stride while protecting from sole to spine

Yes, trimmed properly the shoe should be more comfortable than metal

I can see that a farrier that has some knowledge of your shoes would be required to mount them?

Very simple to install, again see reviews & videos on website or here.

The-Horseshoe-icon-1

Hot shoes last much longer on the horse than cold mounted shoes.

Usually not so, metal installed hot or cold is usually dependent upon the terrain used upon to determine wear
Goldenwingshorseshoes will outwear metal on most terrain, again see installation videos with shoes that were on 12-14 weeks due to mismatched owner/farrier time schedules for shoeing

The-Horseshoe-icon-1

Obviously yours are cold mounted.

Yes, no forge, anvil, or rounding hammer

Are epoxies (or whatever) used to assure a perfect fit to the hoof?


only rasp, nippers, and driving hammer.
