I don't expect anyone to read this. I just want to have a place where I can document and let out somethings so I can critque myself and figure out things I need to work on.
farrier visit.- denny and bailey both get hot shod and lilr ed and jessie get trimmed.
> bailey was alittle nervous with the smoke but soon settled. Needs to strengthen back legs so its easier to pick up hind legs without supporting him.
> denny very good with smoke, stood like a champ was farrier's favorite to work on.
> lilred - a bit pushy but stood constantly testing farrier by putting her weight on him to drop her front feet
> jessie > first farrier he did not kick at. Very pleased!! Farrier was calm and understood he is blind and constantly talked to him while supporting him higher in his hip rather than just his leg up.
Needless to say I really like this farrier and might take a step back from trimming them myself
