Question
hello sir. can i use paddings on all flat feet horses since they are more likely to be ouchy on stones?

Answer
HELLO ROHIT...

YOU can... But keep in mind, anything that takes the hoof away from "the natural" state
will eventually be compromised !!
I would "pad" ONLY as necessary !!  Have a plan & as it is said "Less is More"!!

You Wouldn't take medicine IF You were Not sick or ill.

Best to You!!
