When I try to pick out my horses hooves, he always pulls his leg away. He will let me hold his hoof for about five seconds before yanking it away from my grip. I heard that you should just try to hold on and not let him put it down, but he's just too strong.
There's alot of dirt in his hooves and I just want to clean them out. I got him yesterday morning and today was my first attempt at picking his hooves out.
What should I do? How long can he go without get his hooves cleaned? Any training techiques I can try?
