    Your friends ask good questions. I am curious as to why Chocolate is interested in horse shoes. He should ask Aunty VJ or Brittney that one – they’re both horse experts.

    Dear Chocolate,
    Good queation! Wild horses don’t have horse shoes. When we bring them in from the wild we change their lifestyles so we need to add shoes. Horses hooves are like toenails that grow and needing trimming. The farrier does this before nailing on metal shoes. Some horses need shoes because they are ridden on the concrete road, so the shoes stop their hooves getting worn out. Some horses are show jumpers and they jump higher and turn fast on slippery ground so they need shoes to help them grip. Wild horses wear their feet out naturally so they don’t need a farrier to trim them but they also don’t need the same foot protection as ridden horses because they aren’t worked in the same way. Hope that helps x

Wild horses wear their feet out naturally as they run across different types of ground so they don’t need a farrier to trim them but they also don’t need the same foot protection as ridden horses because they aren’t worked in the same way.
