Farrier Day today so we set off first to Leradale for the Minions and Old Ladies. All fine there.
We worked on the usual basis of those that needed to be trimmed, were trimmed. Newt got off free today. Methinks he should really have cloven feet!
Apparently there’s a farrier in there somewhere!
Then home. As Stephen, our farrier, was only trimming and not hot-shoeing (one firey flaming forge + Pepper = disaster), I made the decision to let the dogs out to introduce themselves. New people and situations are always a good thing. Ted said hello and went quickly back into the house while Pepper stayed around outside to “help”.
This is Efstur’s “I am a good boy” face.
And he was.
Everyone behaved perfectly especially with a small inquisitive dog around taking the hoof pieces to chew. I was very pleased with Pepper.
It was all relatively easy today.
And someone is going to sleep well tonight!
