Hooves

29 Nov

As we get closer to winter weather, I’m trying to get everyone’s hooves trimmed.  You might not have noticed Victoria’s feet in the image I shared a couple of days ago, but it was embarrassing how her feet looked.  They have been trimmed!

It hasn’t been an easy task.  Our weather has been damp this fall, and their feet are horrible.

It looks like I didn’t do a very good job of evening them up, but they have to feel better.

I managed to get nine set done Saturday.

The rain on Sunday prevented me from doing any then.  I will keep trying to get them done though.

I hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

    That is a huge job ahead for you but at least you’ve got it started

    It’s got to be a big job! I don’t envy you, especially because I seem to be thinking that some of them give you fits when it’s manicure time!

      By the way….do you have to trim llamas’ hooves too?

    A good job, Terea!!! Do you use a machete (corn knife to me) and a hammer? That’s how we trimmed our horses’ hooves.

      I still have the corn knife. Probably I should sleep with it under my pillow here in Houston, about second to Chicago in murders.
      But, … Houston is the SECOND FRIENDLIEST CITIES IN THE USA!!!

        We are also a Sanctuary City, one of three major cities, in Texas (Houston, Dallas, San Antonio).

      More like tin snips, but I have actual hoof shears.
