So My horse has developed a bad habit (doesn't do it every time) but he is fine to be trimmed and have his shoes pulled but as soon as my farrier turns on his oven to heat up the shoes (not sure if that's the correct term) he gets wide eyed and snorts and kinda has a mini panic. He HATES hot shoes being placed on his feet. The sizzling freaks him out but even when my farrier goes to nail his shoes on he will pull back because he's being an ass.
Last time he almost got cut with a nail that was sticking out of his hoof because he pulled back and wouldn't let the farrier cut it. He just kept backing up and everytime he almost impailed himself.
What can I do to stop this? It's only when putting shoes back on and I know he's being a brat. It worried me because like last time he could've caused himself a boat load of damage if he cut himself.
Any ideas? Posted via Mobile Device
