Today was the first time I've had the farrier out scince I've owned Candy. Sure enough, she had to be difficult - although the farrier wasn't helping, slamming his tools down and spooking the crap out of her.
She was so flustered that she tried to kick him, so what does he do? Smacks her on the arse with his rasp and she comes flying forward SMOOSHING my foot into the ground (I'm not even wearing boots) garrrghh it hurt .
ANYWAY, despite this he did a nice job of shaping up her hooves - they have always been slightly boxy and her feet are quite dainty for her size.
Notice the lump on her right foreleg? What is this? It came about about 4-6 weeks ago and its extremely hard. I think it has gotten slightly larger, although I can't be sure. It hasn't seemed to bother her - she doesn't do anything when I touch it or anything. She's not lame. Any ideas?
She's also had a large crack in her back right hoof for sometime - he cleaned it him nicely today though.
So what do you think?
