Contracted Heels On Your Mule

Steve Edwards: And that’s the problem, you see we think we can ride the mule and keep the mule without shoeing him.

Steve Edwards: Well heels that are turning in Patty are contracted heels. And that’s the problem. You see we think we can ride the mule and keep the mule without shoeing him. You see when those heels, here’s the heels, when they start coming in, that’s called contraction and when you get contraction of the heel that means your frog’s going to be small. Folks it’s imperative, you know, you don’t have to keep the shod all the time, but if you don’t shoe them properly, those heels are going to come in. Don’t listen to folks that say you don’t have to shoe your mule, you better.
