Farrier Update

Moo had the farrier out today.

He’s been going super so it was a re-shoe all round. My farrier is awesome, it’s an expensive part of owning a horse; I’ll be the first to admit that, but it is necessary and must be done.

After all, I have all the shoes I need, so why shouldn’t Mr Potato Head!

I like to keep him shod as his feet start to chip and crack about three weeks after the farrier has been if he is barefoot.

As you can see from the pic, he has a few conformation issues and being shod is better for him.

Next year I will be changing his shoeing.

My farrier suggested we look into lateral support and corrective shoeing and I think seeing as Mooey will be doing so much in 2018 anything that can help him and keep him sound has to be done!

After all I need my Mooey to have his A-game if we are to reach our 2018 Goals!

The white board and Goal setting book is being looked at as we speak.

Ah it’s only 18 days til New Years and I can’t wait for the year ahead!

In the meantime, Mooey and I are having a five day break and getting ready for what’s next!

This pic makes me smile x

It makes me happy to know he is happy.

Happy Riding & Keep Smiling

    1. Fruit Loops indeed! I used to have a barefoot trimmer who every trim would make Freddy lame, she explained it as the fact that his hoof was not hard enough and she had to cut the hoof rot out of it. well here’s an idea! Far out, cut him more regularly and less harshly.
