Hoof trim for the new horse.

After about a week and a half of getting Pinatubo accustomed to me picking up her feet, I got the front ones trimmed a bit today.

They were in better shape than when we first saw them. I think the owner was riding regularly so the horse wouldn’t misbehave when I picked it up. Still had a flare on the inside of the off side front. Near side only needed a bit of shaping.

Only allowing one photo at a time. Here is what they looked like back in November.

beautiful!


I could tell, even, from the first photos of her, that they looked basically of a good structure.

Yea, even in the first photo, it looked like some trimming would whip these feet into shape real fast.

Thanks folks. I’m going slow with it. I suspect that no one even picked up her feet.

I started cleaning her him hooves just a few days ago. Pulled them up with a rope at first because she has threatened to kick. But she stands well when I do it normally now.

I’ll probably trim those next week. They are actually in pretty good shape. But the other horse is due now.

Are you sure someone didnt try to tidy her hooves up before shipping her to you?

If not, I amazed at how well she appears to have self-trimmed:)

You did a great job trimming especially since you had to hold her hooves up with a rope. Have you whispered to yourself that youre getting too old for this , lollol

Nice job. What I really like is the fact that you got him up on his toes. He is like an athlete, up and ready to go, not sitting on his heels. Best is the release on tension on his tendons.
