The shoes can be removed by sanding the fabric off of the hoof wall using a disk sander. Alternatively, the shoes can be removed by inserting the blade of a utility knife between the hoof and the shoe (find the plane above the rim pad & below the hoof), and cutting the fabric from heel to heel. The fabric is then peeled off the hoof wall using shoe pullers. In most cases, the fabric will separate from the adhesive, leaving a layer of adhesive on the hoof wall. Care must be taken that the hoof wall is not damaged when removing the fabric. If the hoof wall starts to separate when the fabric is peeled, the fabric must be sanded off the hoof instead.
Note: The fabrics are extremely tough and require a very sharp utility knife to cut through the 4 layers.
