She has one habit that is dangerous at the moment, and that is refusing to give her hind feet for picking or farrier work. She tries to cow kick. In close, it's not a problem, but eventually, I will have to trim her feet. Fortunately there is a trick that I learned when taking the farrier course that works to cure this. I have used it on two other horses with a similar problem and had them giving their feet and standing for trimming in about 15 minutes. Hopefully it will work on her. It does not involve twitching, a process that I guess has a place, but not on this acreage!
Expect more pictures as the process develops!
A great day to be on an Acreage!
