Mission failed. Went out with a plan and completely choked. Feel like I completely messed up and just hope that he does not get sore. Didn't even do his hind legs as I felt I was doing more harm than good. Bars were very hard to even cut into.
Discouraged at the moment. I need to find a workshop or someone in the area willing to work with me. Anyone know of any good resources for this? I'd at least like to be able to do maintenance in between trims.
Tools were harder to use than expected and I feel like maybe I shouldn't have even used the nippers. Some of the wall had broken off in the pasture and I feel that I just made it worse. The groove in his quarter is even bigger... Feeling emotional. Here are before and after pictures. Please just constructive comments and no hate. I feel bad enough as is... :(
Front view after my "trim." Like I said, I kinda just stopped before I made things even worse.
