Farrier- how to get...
my horse ready for the farrier to come?
The farrier is coming this week! Breeze has never been to the farrier, so I want to prepare her for it. Is there any way I can get her ready for him.
She picks up all 4 hooves perfectly, and will let you hold them for a while. Sometimes she will put her weight on you, but I just drop the hoof, putting her off balance and uncomfortable, then pick it up again (Clinton Anderson Technique)
Other then that, is there anything I can do? Breeze is 2 and has good hooves, she was out in pasture all her life until this fall, when I bought her.
