    Hoof questions

    Hey, so my the lady who I have come and trim my horses feet Is REALLY good at it but its hard to always set up a time for her to come and then it doesn't always happen when it needs to (she's not perfessional). So I was wondering if I should just learn how to. If you agree, please give some tools and tips to trim feet the easiest and safest way... Thanks!!!!

    I wouldn't recommend you doing your own horse's feet until you have had schooling, or someone training with you. It's not just a "go get the tools and do it" kind of thing. If it was that easy every would do it, if cut wrong, your horses can get extremely sore, or you can all together ruin their feet. I would say, unless you are willing to take the time to train with someone or go to school, get a farrier that has time to come do your horses' feet.

    Of course I would have her teach me... I wouldn't want to hurt my horse, (who would) I was just wondering.
