Heck iv got 4 broken ribs only about a week of being carefull then back to doing normal stuff. Iam my own farrier horses needed trimming so I did them. Yeah hurts like hell but I just tough it out. Id rather not run to doctors for every little thing.
So instead of trimming both fronts on 2 horses I did two fronts then next day did fronts on other horse. If your going to own horses youv got to be tough.
