Picking Up Hoof When Other One Is Sore
I'm not sure if this should be in the training session or health session. My mare's hooves have been tender since we moved to a rocky, clay area. Anyway, I am trying to pick them regularly, but it is a huge struggle to get her to pick up the right hoof when the left one is sore. She will actually pick it up, but then jerk it back down, and I am not strong enough to keep it up. I would normally make her work hard until she is willing to keep it up, but I don't know what to do when she is sore. I appreciate any suggestions.
