I am new here, so I'm not quite sure where to post this. I have a 26 or so yr old mare and I love her to death. But she has severe arthritis in her knees. Recently, it has become worse and its a battle to clean her front right foot because she will not put he weight on her front left fully anymore. I don't know what to do, because she needs a trim soon. We do not have a special farrier, my brother is very good at it but we don't have any special stands or what not.
Does anyone have any ideas of stands or slings we could use while trimming so she doesn't have to bear all her weight on that leg? She also cannot bend those knees very much at all. Thanks for any ideas!
