OK... back on point.... I was really hoping you would come back and say what you did! ( I was really disappointed when we asked the old owners when the last time they were trimmed...Its a really long time to go between trims...)
My farrier said that she was not going to be agressive with this first trim and that she would gradually take them back further......so you are spot on correct there! She (farrier) is comming by monday to check the chipping. Then we have 6 week appointments set for the remainder of the summer to get their feet in shape.
You're the bomb barefoothooves!!!!!!!! Thanks for the input and info...( I have the epsom salts on the counter! Lol... we are going to wait till it cools down outside a little then soak him) Thanks again....
Oh... how long should we try to soak it?
