Farriers Using Twitches
My farrier has shod my horse 3 times with little or no problem. However, this time she gave him a hard time. He managed to shoe the front feet, but when he got to the back ones, she was trying to kick him and would not stand still.
When he suggested using a twitch on her muzzle, I said absoultely not. So she has her front feet shod, and no shoes on the back. I was disappointed that he gave up so easily, and I did pay him the full price.
To be honest, I have never used a twitch on my horse because I think she'd probably go psycho. What's your thoughts?
