Yesterday for my riding lesson I did not ride my horse...instead I rode a Belgian/Appaloosa gelding named Jack. I rode him because no one ever rides him and I thought it would be good for him to be ridden in a lesson, and get excersize. Well after the lesson was over, and I put Jack back into his pasture, I went down to Sonny's pasture, grabbed a bag full of Sonny's grain, and brought Sonny and his grain up to the arena. The girls whom I ride with usually were sitting outside on chairs, so I told Sonny to go and say hi ("No mom, I'll say hi after you give me that grain bag" lol) and one of the girls, who is a junior instructor...said "Oh my God! What's the matter with Sonny's feet! They are wayy too small". So of course I looked at Sonny's feet, checked them over and found nothing wrong with them...I looked at the girl kinda confused and then all the other girls agreed also that his hooves were really small.
So after listening to them say that I should get a vet to do x-rays on his hooves, etc....I told them that Sonny had his hooves done on Friday and that was the size they were suppposed to be.
The barn owner let's her horse's hooves go a tad bit longer than they should...also her farrier is hard to contact so it's hard for her to get her horse's hooves trimmed regularly. So all of her horse's hooves are really long...so the girls thought that having long hooves was what a horse was supposed to have haha.
I just found that kinda funny
