    Ohh ok Katie :)

    Well the farrier and vet are coming out tomorrow. I will post an update and take pictures of him feet, both before and after.

    Tom told me yesterday that if the farrier says he needs shoes, we're going to thank him for his time and the trim and call a barefoot trimmer. But i'm thinking, because he hasn't seen a farrier in a while, that his hooves are going to have to be trimmed back to where shoes could be put on, and that they wouldn't put shoes on him right away.

    Yesterday I was able to pick up all 4 feet again (YAY) and I put koppertox on them too. Though I wasn't able to take any pictures for 2 reasons, 1. He kept moving around and I didn't want him to step on my camera, or for me to step on it, and 2, since I wasn't feeling all that well, I didn't want to waste all my energy asking him to pick up his feet again.
    So when the farrier comes out, i'm going to be nosey and take pictures of his hooves.
