Depends on horse
hot shoeing
My horses are always cold shoed
Hot shoeing!
My farrier does hot shoeing and cold shoeing, but I believe hot shoeing is better because it gets a perfect shape of the hoof, while cold shoeing is just hammered in. Overtime my horses had cold shoeing the shoe fell of, but ever since I started hot shoeing its been great with my horses!
