Getting a trim

I just wanted to share some progress Cinder has made. Not only was she letting the farrier work on her feet but she was standing still for him, even on cross ties. This is only her third time.

Oh yeah. The barn is always clean like that. The entire property is clean like that. It is really great out there. Dry, even during the rainy season. Great for the horses.

Good job! Does your farrier always ask for the horse to be in cross-ties? Personally I don't like the horse to be tied when doing feet, I prefer the owner to hold the horse. My own horses I only tie loosely. If they slip, a good tug from the horse will release the rope. I learned this after almost having a horse fall when I was doing his back feet.

She is doing great, looks like an old pro. Very pretty horse and yes, clean barn. LOL. What is the floor made out of?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

They are rubber mats laid on concrete. Stalls are padded as well.
