    Lillie vs The Farrier

    Lillie is almost 18 months old and she had her first farrier visit today. She did AWESOME!!! All the work I've done...ground work/round pen work, paid off. She stood there like a champ, like she'd done it a 1000 times!!!!!!!!!!! The farrier was so impressed he kept asking where I got her, what her background was. He complimented me on how well she was acting and then when I went to pay...he knocked of $5 because she was so well behaved!!!!!!!

    And now she has beautiful pedicured feet and it looks like she's going to a ball!!! Can you tell I'm awful proud of her!!!!!!????

    I'll have to take some photos of her beautiful feet tomorrow.

    I'm proud of her too! It's really wonderful that owners like you take the time to work with their young horses before the farrier comes to make it easier. It sounds like Lillie is off to a great start in her training.

    Farriers have a terrible job. They really appreciate well behaved horses. Congrats on preparing your youngster so well.

    I worked picking up her feet every time I worked her. I was always messing with her getting her to give to a rope on/around her legs. I also worked with tarps, blankets, anything I could find really. I also did some clicker training with her. She's very food motivated.
