hoof triming?

So I was wondering what you need to do to trim them myself? They let me handle their feet way better then they do for our ferrir.

Train your horses to stand for the farrier. There is no excuse for them to not stand still.

Harley, I know you know your horses and care for them, but I have to agree with NdAppy about this. Teach them to stand for the ferriar..From just your posts and threads you've started, I don't think it's a good idea for you to trim your horses yourself. If you want to learn to trim your horses yourself it takes time, people go to school for it. It's not something someone with not much experience can just pick up and do themselves.. I'd hate for you to try to trim your horses and end up with a bigger vet bill than a ferriar bill.

I agree with the above two. Trimming hooves is not like just clipping your fingernails; you are affecting the way a horse walks and even whether it can or not. Leave it to the professionals.
