SO im getting into barefoot trimming and well my farrier hasnt been able to come out for 4 months! So my horses hooves are getting so long and chipping off so I decided to trim them myself!
Like I said my FIRST TIME EVER so don't expect them to be perfect.
My horse is quite flat footed and he has a few chips and cracks so I did the best I could to make them better, I prob took off 1cm of hoof, he was pretty long as you can tell by the cracks. I just used nippers and a rasp.
Back hoof you can see he still has a bit of flare but I didnt wanna take off to much on the heel.
Same hoof just side shot. You can see where he had a little chip.
Now he's the BIG chip I tried to get as much off as possible.
