    I just want to say - I love your posts in this thread Loosie, and it fits so well with what I have been learing recently that it makes me feel I am on the right track.

    Thank you very much Wild Spot! You just made me feel all warm & fuzzy! I only want to help people - well, their horses, more to the point, and I try to be respectful and objective in my posts, tho I'm only human & know I'm not the best communicator in the world, so it's good to know I get it right sometimes!

    That's ok! I am loving the journey i'm on now learning about hoofcare - I love that it all makes such easy sense to me. I'm actually considering doing the Equine Podiotherapy course that is here in AUS run by Andrew Bowe and others, but not sure I could handle chopping up feet - Couldn't watch the manipulation of a fresh limb at the clinic I went to! But I am really keen to learn as much as I can on this subject, I only wish I started earlier...

    Yeah, after hearing great reports from other hc professionals and vets, I'm VERY keen to do the course, but didn't have the funds for it this year. Hopefully will for early next year, but apparently it's already filling fast!

    Re your prob with dead feet & legs, perhaps some hypnotherapy, or pretend you're just at the butchers?? It is seriously worth getting over the prob if you can, because it is SO educational, having & examining dissected bits - way more insightful than just looking at pics & diagrams.

    I hadn't even thought of hypnotherapy. I'm usually okay with things that are already dead, but living things with injuries etc. really get me, I usually have to leave and sit down before I faint. I think it was the fact that the leg was so fresh that got me, he was squishing the digital cushion and pulling tendons and such, ick. Maybe i'll have to look into it, because I would REALLY love to do the course. I'm having such fun and learning so much just trimming our three horses with quite different feet, I can't even begin to imagine how much more there is to learn.

    I think I would have to save up and do it year after next.
