Farrier Came To Visit!

Please let me know if I posted this in the wrong place,
Farrier came to visit Chinga today, as on Sunday he had a loose shoe. I was worried that Chinga was going to throw up his feet and not let the farrier get a good grip. But he was perfect. He keep resting his head on my shoulder and looking at me like mummy is he done yet? Now he has no shoes on and we are going to see how he goes without shoes. Iíve got four perfect horse shoes now!

if he was shod all around, dont be surprised if he comes up sore in the next few weeks as he gets used to being barefoot.

I hope he likes being barefoot! Mine love it, and it's so much easier to maintain.

Glad he was so good! Keep an eye on those feet as being barefoot they break down faster. Also, you could get some sole paint from your farrier if he is too sore. Hope you feel better!

Mindy was sore for a couple of weeks when we took her shoes off.

Well the shoes were put back on a few weeks ago. Decided the day of my lesson to tell me they were sore! Thanks alot boy, he has his front feet on only and he seems to not have a problem with it now. I have to put "Golden Oil" on his hoofs everynight, to stop mud cracks and stuff like that.
