Balance While Shoeing?
So, Monday was the second time that I have had Millie shod. The first time my farrier came to the house and the ground is not totally level plus the wind was up and all. She was constantly leaning on him and acting like she was going to lay down. I ended up holding her lead and getting after her a little when she would start to lean. He blamed it on the non-level ground and the weather that time.
On Monday I took her to his place. We were in the dairy barn with level footing and I held her again. She did the same things. Then he said it was becuase she just dosn't have good balance. What do you think?
FYI. She has no pain issues. I have taken her to the chiro 2x in the past 2 months and she shows no soreness anywhere. She is fine to ride and on her own.
Do any of you have any suggestions? Maybe she is just lazy. She seems to like to have her feet done, so I was thinking she may just be getting so relaxed that this happens. She never fell or laid down, but I just don't know if it could be a balance issue???
