Have you ever wondered what happens to natural wild horse hooves? After all, our domesticated horses need regular attention from the farrier to keep their hooves in shape, so why don’t wild horses have these problems?
Natural wild horse hooves do not get overgrown as they live very differently to domesticated horses. A wild horse will travel for many miles each day in search of food, often over rough terrain. This wears the hooves down and keeps them in shape.
