My girl has gotten into the habit of desperatly trying to pull her front feet out of my grip. I did have her trained to where I could tap the inside of her leg and she would lift it for me. She would do this everytime I asked then all of the sudden she started fighting me to pick up her front left. She would literally try to run backwards, and would nearly fall over on to her side or knees everytime I held her foot for more than a few seconds. Now she does the same with the right front. She also occasionaly tries to kick at me when I pick up one of her back legs, usually just holding it there until she settles works. The only way I could clean her front hooves was by letting her graze, then she didn't care. I am currently just messing with her feet and picking them up and holding them for a few seconds randomly when I am around or working with her. Is there anything else I can try? I do also make sure she is balanced and standing square before I ask her to pick up her foot.
