I had a vet look for any type of pain in her back legs and he said there shouldnt really be a reason she shouldnt allow you to pick them up..she completely sound *sigh* Oh and her back is fine it was the mis fitting saddle sorry off topic
So when ever I try and pick up her back feet she will first pick it up real high then first try and kick me but im standing close enough that she can't really get the momentum to strike out at me. BUt she throws me right off balence.
So I've taught her to just rest each foot on the ground for cleaning that way I just don't have to deal with it... but I need to get her back feet picked up.
SHe will let me towel/brush anywhere on her back legs and wipe mud off her hooves ect...
Some people are saying its a respect issue.. which we are working on that but it doesnt seem to be helping. The farrier is coming out to do her feet and SOMEHOW he does her back feet [im not usually there usually at school]
I need HELP! Im afraid since I can't pick up her back feet I wouldnt be able to catch any kind of fungus or w.e could start back there.
Lmao I was thinking about tieing a lead rope on her back foot then get on her back and pull up so I wont get kicked but that could be dangerous so obviously im not going to do that.
