We are still in lockdown so I try to keep my journeys to a minimum.
Mojo has been good with his feet, but when the trimmer came we had to go to the pony yard. Our part of the yard was having a new stable built. So he was a little on his toes to start with. He did settle but then spooked big time when the trimmer arrived.
We tried to do his hinds first – as they weren’t done last time, but no he wasn’t having that. So we did his fronts, he settled and lifted them up, he did fidget a bit but was good with them on the hoof stand.
When I got him out on Monday he was very lively but after a little trot round the school was very good with his feet, they were picked out, sprayed and field paste applied. So it is not that he can’t lift them up but there is a deep seated mistrust of trimmers/farriers.
