Farrier day today.
First up were Hetja and Brá for trims, though it was only Hetja who was trimmed in the end. Brá didn’t need anything.
Then we quickly drove over to Leradale for Sóley …..
And Lilja. Both had trims and were very good girls considering we don’t do much with them.
Home to Thordale and happily indoors (we were all freezing). We had brought everyone in to the stables before breakfast so they would be easy to reach.
Haakon had his fronts trimmed and we discussed the possibility of shoes again. Maybe in Spring.
Then it was the turn of “The Orange Lot”! First Klængur who was happily chatting to the farrier’s lad. Shoes on for him.
Kappi – shoes on after his 6 week holiday.
And then it was Efstur’s turn. He had been brought in earlier to watch Kappi have his back set put on. Efstur has never been shod in his life and, as he has been backed, Daisy wanted shoes on. A full set. Hot-shod.
Kappi stayed for moral support.
Efstur was wonderful. So good. Once he had worked out what was going on, he chatted away to Daisy and behaved beautifully.
He just got on with it. Some don’t.
What a good boy.
A total star.
Then Dreki had a trim and that was us. Taktur has now packed his metaphorical spotty hanky, donned his thong and gone on holiday, but under farrier advice and Daisy’s agreement, kept his shoes on.
All was good. We came in frozen but happy. I was really impressed with Efstur. There could’ve been fireworks but no, he just settled into being a grown-up. Phew!
