Good luck! I hope it all goes well for you! Great idea, never having to depend on anyone else to get your horses feet done, which can be very tricky these days!

I only did one horse today but i guess that normal for the first one since I was trying to get all the angles measured right. Plus We're using our own horses and Talon is more flat footed and his feet always appear longer then they should bee to me. But He said it was pretty when I was done for my first actual trim. Going back tomorrow to practice on another horse.

Oh Congratulations! I'm so envious. I'd love to do that. Once upon a time I was going to go to a trimmer's clinic / course for two weeks solid, but alas, life took over...

Please tell ALL about it!
