Wink The difference a good trim makes

I've had Caesar now for just under 3 weeks. He has gained about 50lbs and has generally developed personality. He got a bath. We got rid of rain rot. We are working on his dry skin. And just this morning my farrier finally made it out to give him a trim.

For curiosity sake, we took a video of him before the trim while I lunged him to warm him up and get him listening good.

Here is him before the trim

And this is after his trim. He looks like his is MUCH more comfortable and light on his feet to me.

Ripplewind and Thunderspark like this.

He's definately more collected in the second one and seems more comfortable. :)

Today he is even better now that he has had a chance to get used to his "new" feet. I had to work today so I did not get a chance to work him, but just watching him when I turned him out this morning he was a very happy boy.
