This is gunna be kinda long but I'll keep it as short as I can..
Well, it all started when we needed to get the horses hooves trimmed and we couldn't get a hold of our fairer for a few weeks, then we found out that one of my old riding intructors (sp?) he was a fairer too, so we thought why not? so we called him up and he came out yesterday evening.
Him and my dad started talking and then we were ready to do the horses but for some reason my dad didn't have his shoes on? lol so he went in the house to get his boots and me and Kenny (fairer dude lol) we went to the barn.
So we get into the barn and he says "Thats Ducky isn't it?" I was like "yeah! How did you know?" well he had done Ducky's feet before! I thought it was weird because Kenny had a stable but Ducky was at a different stable kinda far from Kenny's.. Well anyway I thought that was good that he knew Ducky so he would know how to give him a good trim.
Any way while he was doing the horses feet he was telling us about how he sold his barn and his horses and was going into be a mounty but he broke his leg awhile ago and now he has to wait to get back on the mounty thing.
Then he started telling us about Ducky.. He said he was never trained to do anything! he was saddle broke but never trained to really do anything.. The reason why was because he was bought as a baby to this woman and she wanted to train him and he would love her and all of that crap.. and then he just kept getting sold to different people because know one knew how to train horses.. so ..... yeah lol
But in the end both my beasties got a good trim! If I knew how to upload pics I'd show ya but I suck with computers :) But both Abby and Ducky 's hooves look great!
P.S sorry if there is any spelling mistakes, I'm not a good speller :) And cookies if you understood any of this :)
Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
