I'm not sure, if I am in the right column with my question, but I am sure it will be okay :-)
Recently I had a customer who's horse was very sore in his back, together with massive hoof problems. The last farrier cut them completely to the ground and was fired afterwards, because the horse was so lame.
I told her that we would have to wait for his hoofs to grow, it would not make any sense to start treating his spinal issues now, because the malposition of his hoofs would move his spine back to where it is at the moment. This would only cost her more money, so we will wait for his hoofs.
I talked to her new farrier, who is really doing a great job and told him about the kicking/therapeutic massage rings. He was really excited about this idea, but there is one thing we need more information about, before we can build them.
As Monty always mentions, the rings he uses are made of an iron copper composition. Is there anything known about how many % are out of iron and how many % are out of copper?
I am really looking forward to your answers :-)
