Sorry it didn't work out for you kitten. Its hard work no matter how you do it
My farrier has no worrys about us starting to do it ourselves. I can't wait till she can get back to trimming. I can to the pretzel stance between the knees butt up for about 2-3 min. Then I have to drop the foot and get my body twisted back to normal
Of course then I'm out of commision for the rest of the day when I'm finished.
