Hooves Trimming Themselves
We usually get the farrier out to trim hooves every 4 months at the most. Well, our 4 months is almost up, and today I noticed that Specs's hooves have trimmed themselves. They were getting somewhat long on Wednesday, I let him out into his Summer pasture on Thursday, then today the long parts of his hooves were either off or just about off. His hooves actually looked quite nice, as far as length goes, so my dad just filed them a little so they looked a little prettier and less jagged. I have no need for the farrier this time! Saved $40! (My farrier is ridiculously priced. Ugh)
I'd guess that the mud by the creek in the summer pasture would be the reason that the long parts would come off, right?
Do your horse's hooves ever get trimmed by themselves?
Every horse is an angel... They just don't need wings to soar!
