Yup.. I usually have to lean on him to get the front ones up.. I've never had a farrier do his back ones cause they always said that they looked good and didn't need a trim. They usually stay pretty well kept. I don't know, I just know that I need to really get into a regular habit of picking them up. I have that with the front, but I just can't get the back ones. If we really work at it, we can get him to pick up his back ones, but only for a few seconds. I need some help and know it.
Tinyliny, I don't think he has pain, but Maybe I should have our vet check it out. He usually stands fine and everything and never is babying his hind feet. Also, Where should I really stand if I use the soft rope?? I've got him to the point where He likes the rope, My next problem is he likes it too much!!! he tries to get into his mouth, but I've mostly got that taken care of.
To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question!
