Greetings from Arizona!
 
I figured I should probably introduce myself and tell everyone a little about me! So here it goes!
My name is Jayknee I am 26! I have 2 horses one gelding he is a quarter/hafflinger cross (thats our best guess) he is 17 years young strawberry roan with the flaxin mane and tale. My mare is 9 she is a Tb/Paint. She has had a rough life before I got her and has the scar to prove it! All I can say is cap your T-posts! I also have 3 cats 2 of which are throw aways! All are fixed! I also have 6 female bettas and 1 male betta. as well as 2 footlong goldfish! And last but not least I also have a husky! Thats it for kritters for now!
I am a self professed hoof nut! People seriously think I have a foot fettish LOL! I am learning to be a farrier I dont do too bad of a job with it! I got tired of paying someone to shoe my mare and leaving her with long toes and underrun heels! I have been triming my gelding for the last few years so I have the triming part down pat. It may take me longer to shape the shoes but I get the job done eventually! When I get
good enough I would like to do it professionally! So many feet to fix so little time.

Welcome to the forum, Jayknee! We have some good hoof gurus on here. I lived in AZ when I was little, I miss the desert!

Welcome, Jayknee!

I'm another Arizonan. I would LOVE to learn to trim my own hooves (my gelding's hooves are hard as rock, so he doesn't need shoes). What area of AZ are you in?

I live in the tiny town of Rimrock Az. Its 1 hr south of Flagstaff and 90min North of Phoenix! As for pics they will be up as soon as I have time to dig them out and post them! No post is truely compleate without pics.

As fot the rock hard feet I know exactly what your talking about! It helps to flood part of the pen the night before so that its slightly muddy. The feet are much easier to do then!

I have been to Chino Valley my most recent trip was to the 4 shoes farrier supply! I bet you have at least been to the Cowboy Corner in Presscott at least once! I work in their Camp Verde store I wonder if we have ever met?
I am working on getting the required pic's up ASAP! Their already on photobucket so it should be easy!

I think I have it figured out so here it goes! I'll start with my gelding and a little disclamer! He is not fat I have had people remark that he is very overweight when in fact he is not. He has a deep heartgirth with a pretty stocky build! He is my cart horse and regularly goes down the road at a trot! This is Lucky at our 4th of July parade pulling his cart looking mighty fancy![IMG]http://i1120.photobucket.com/albums/...7-04095947.jpg[/IMG]
