Update on Mojo’s feet

August 17th 2019

The hoof trimmer came this afternoon, Mojo was more relaxed with him but unfortunately the trimmer feels he needs more frequent visits to be completely at ease with him, the trimmer lives to far away for this to be feasible.
3 feet were trimmed but the right hind is still a problem.

August 20th 2019.
Mojo was seen by the vet this morning, he was booked in for teeth and vaccinations so I asked her to look at his hind limbs. He trotted up fine but looked a little unlevel.
He was so good with the flexion test on the left leg, trotted away fine. Vet then went to do the right leg and he wouldn’t let her any where near it. Conclusion is he is sore on that leg, probably hock but as he isn’t very co-operative we can’t do any more tests. So the plan is bute for a week before any attempt to trim his feet, and for 2 or 3 days afterwards. He is already on cortaflex and buteless supplements.
Also I need to teach him to rest his hind feet on a stand of some sort so he is more comfortable.
So now just to find a sympathetic female hoof trimmer
