We had a go at trimming Hetja’s hooves. It wasn’t easy. She’s a big girl by our standards and was fairly unhelpful too. It made us realise that Shetland ponies are much easier to trim and also much more co-operative. Well, mine are. Having said that, we haven’t trimmed Newt yet so we may change our minds on that score. The night is still young.
Again, Daisy was on clippers and I was on rasp duties and we did our best, despite some severe leaning and snatching back of her hinds. And yes, I did bollock her for this.
However, I think we did a good job. Like I said, Hetja was not helpful and we climbed back into the car feeling like we had been in a rugby match. It jolly nearly killed us both. Only another billion to trim (well, that’s what it feels like anyway).
I have renamed Hetja the Heffalump Cowbag!
