yeah most people think that when they hear it :p But they don't have anything to put on it though so he's going to be sore until his hoof grows back.

I am starting a new yoga regimen for Flash. Carrot stretches, stomach lifts, ect. I think he likes it so far! Especially the carrot stretches....
oh yeah! Lots of money! And when she took Phoenix (the colt) to the farrier college she took another horse up there too to get her hooves done and she got sick at the college! Another whole wack of money for the meds and all. My gosh!! We're paying more for Cheyenne now but I wish that there was more that we could do! I mean, really, Phoenix had one shoe put on him for balance (it came off with his hoof) and that one shoe was $80!! That's about double we pay for Cheyenne's 2 hooves, and there's so much more!! It's insane!!!
