That's good to hear.  I still have not found anything on him having the glue on fronts in the KD.  I caught that in the changes, but could not fin anything else about it.  Sainthood also had them.  Two other shoe changes Dynamic One was one of them, can't remember the other.  I think they had bends, not sure since I was not planning on using either of them.

I haven't seen this conversation sbout shoes so not sure what you are referring to.....

Big Brown ran on 1/4 of a hoof so I don't worry too much although bar shoes are not a thing I like to see.  OTOH I am not a blacksmith so I don't know enough about the technology, and trust that they are balancing the horses the way their expertise indicates.

No conversations were on that, I was watch the twinspires feed on Derby day and the changes had EQ shoe change.  I know those glue ons can be for heel issues sometimes.

Thanks! Shoe changes is probably something I should pay more attention to.
