Ellieandrose - Denny is such a handsome bugger. x) What color is he? It looks pretty neat. :)
For Takala I worked with her feet since she was three months old. We'd 'play' farrier and I'd rasp a little off her hooves every few weeks. She was five months when she got her first real trim, and stood like a champ. Practice makes perfect. Every time I go out by them I have her pick up all of her feet for me, though to start I would make sure he will pick up his feet without walking away before trying in pasture. Consistent work and he will be standing like a pro in no time. Takala has the attention span of gnat and does pretty good, so if she can, any yearling can.
