Mind you this was only the preliminary trim to take off excess and give him his heel back. His next session is in a couple of weeks. Mercifully, other than the obvious difficulty walking with slipper feet, he doesn't appear to be in any pain and moves normally. Trots and plays with the other pony so I have high hopes for full recovery.
Several of the larger chunks after the trim and an entire frog that was doing it's best to exfoliate.
And I worked with both of the boys to get a better idea what they know and what they don't know. Frankie tacked up like a gentleman as usual and didn't mind me jostling the saddle in a manner similar to mounting. My hope is that he will one day be able to be some little boy or girl's first pony or at least, if he isn't sound for riding later, they can learn to catch, halter, lead, tie, groom...etc. with him.
