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.

Maybe they to head out a half hour before he gets there to mess with her hooves and get her used to it. Clementine is awesome with me touching her feet - I can mess with them all I want. The first time I had the farrier out, I went out and lifted her feet, messed with them, etc - and she stood perfect. When the farrier came, though... She was a butt. Pulled away, threw her head, made everything difficult. There's no way you can predict how she will act, just make sure she's okay with getting her feet touched and hope for the best!
