The farrier came today so the whole family had to be involved too. Monster looked on.
We had full sets of shoes put on for Taktur, Kappi and Klængur.
Dreki and Efstur’s hooves were trimmed and rasped. For the youngsters, who will one day be ridden, I think it is better for the farrier to trim them properly rather than me/Daisy attempting this. Hoof shape will influence how young bones and muscles grow and develop.
Her Maj luckily she gave up today’s suicide mission and went to bed. She was exhausted from trying to kill herself under everyone’s feet.
Then down the road for Hetja and Brá’s pedicure and on to the Minion field for Sóley.
So that’s that for another few weeks. A necessary job well done. Daisy and my trimming/rasping work was approved of, so that was a relief and a bit of a pat on the back for us.
