Id like to see him after a few months of proper feet trimming-- was he shod?
Yes, he was flared and the bars were almost to his toes. I couldn't think of the right word... Ugh brain farts. The previous owners had not had him trimmed for a while.. they kept saying they couldnt trim him without sedating him.. Myself and my new farrier held him by ourselves, he got scared on the first hoof.. It was literally 1 minute of him understanding we were not killing him and he was a perfect gentleman lifted every foot and held it there flawlessly.
We are trying without shoes first. Id like to keep him barefoot, but I know not all of them can do it. He was a little tender when we were going of some larger gravel rocks today.. But it was his first time on his new "feet".
