I went to see Mojo on Monday the 11th May after 6 weeks of not travelling anywhere due the virus pandemic. We have been safe and adhered to all lockdown and self isolation measures. Mojo has been in a field with Smoke and Indi in the care of our excellent yard owner.
When I went on Monday I just picked out his feet in the field and did a few exercises.
Today, I joined my daughter – we are now allowed to see 1 other person we don’t live with – as long as we stay 2 metres apart. I picked out Mojos front feet but he was a bit sticky with the hinds. So I just looked at them.
Liz managed to rasp one front foot before Mojo decided enough was enough. So I just applied some hoof paste and gave him a good groom. Apparently he was not impressed with having to come out of the field into his stable this morning. Even with the yard owners husband leading him – he normally loves him and isn’t a problem.
We will have to do more sessions on the yard before asking the trimmer to come. Liz will rasp one foot at a time if necessary.
