A few reminders about your appointment with your trimmer or farrier.....
I'm very prompt as a rule, so please have horses ready when I arrive. Making me wait while you round up the herd over a 200 acre pasture with one halter takes up valuable time!
Have some flyspray available in the summer. It's impossible to ask the horses to stand quietly when they are being bitten bloody by the pests.
Have shade available or shelter from the rain. In the summer I absolutely cannot work in the direct sun. I work hard and sweat a lot, but standing in the sun too is enough to make me ill. Even a tree with shade works great! If it's pouring rain, we need a place to stay dry. While I won't melt in the rain....and I do enjoy it....my tools do not! Rust is not my friend and frankly driving around in wet clothes all day can be uncomfortable.
Teach basic ground manners to your horses. I don't mind training horses, but I'll charge you extra! Not really, and I do understand that young horses and new rescues may be less than behaved, but I do expect to see some improvement as we go along!
Please heed recommendations. You pay us for our knowledge......I have studied hard to learn about nutrition, the trim and whole horse health. My suggestions to improve hoof quality isn't for fun. I want a nice hoof just like you do and the more we can get on the same page, the better. Sometimes it's not possible to do everything, but any amount of compliance helps.
Talk with your trimmer or farrier. Let them know if there was a problem with the last trim. We can't fix what we don't know is wrong. Communication is the key!

This illustrates how important it is to address deep sulcus infections.....

This is cool our student was pulling a shoe off a cadaver leg and the whole hoof capsule came off in one easy pulling of a nail.. What's interesting is the thrush between the bulbs is going right through .. it wasn't torn at all I could stick a E10 nail right through it .. do we take thrush too lightly??

Gotta love it when they start coming around...This mare was sold as a pasture pet due to lameness. I was called to see if I could do something with her....she's been lame for 8 years. The films showed evidence of rotation and remodeling of the coffin bone....She was profoundly lame when I came the first time....only walking when forced to and unable to bear weight on the bad foot even with a pad underneath for more a few minutes. Took the heel down on that side as far as was safe, put her in boots with pads....Got the toe back on the other foot which was also sensitive. Discussed change in diet and making a dry lot for this mare. The owners have been exceedingly compliant....when I went to trim her the other day he showed me this video of her without boots in her new dry lot area that they just built. https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipNK8-cEZ8e0zK_rf1i_qu-UqbJZOGQnWEySoVA30w3rj1-SVS0sTkjE6OYGqR9FTQ/photo/AF1QipPhe8QIhya1GCWm7uNK3FAzqQ3hMgkNwj6RoHY0?key=Y2xvQTRrZ3RnaWlhREdSWWNUMU1qSGE4Z2ZxQUFB

Something to remember.......

Something to remember.......

Today I visited a beautiful horse. I was early and his people were late. He was such an old soul. I took the liberty of taking off his horse rugs and graciously placed my hands upon his back. He took in a deep breath and closed his eyes. I stroked him ever so gently, and purposefully ran my hands all over his tired ageing body and he relished every moment. The connection was truly amazing and cannot be described with words, it had no words, it was an immense feeling at a soul level.

He told me he was a School Master and every day he gave lessons to children, some times two or three in a day, sometimes less, sometimes more. He also told me that not one person gave him the time, the time to just sit and be with him, to truly be with him, to stroke him, to show him he mattered and to connect with him at a deep level.

People came, people went. They saddled him up, they rode him, they unsaddled him, his rugs were put on, and he was put back in his yard, sometimes with a feed, sometimes not. Sometimes with fresh sweet water, but most of the time the staleness of three day old water was sour to his lips.

He wanted not to be taken for granted, he gave his best everyday and he just wanted somebody to sit awhile and ask nothing of him. I sat awhile and I asked nothing of him, I stroked his hair and gave him my undivided attention. I gave him his sweet tasting water and our souls were forever linked within that moment.

Thank you beautiful boy for reminding me to be present, to open my heart fully and to give to you unconditionally.

The importance of diet in horses can't be overstressed. High sugar, high carb diets, infrequent feedings and no activity can lead to foot issues such as laminitis and chronic founder. Dump the grain! Be careful of the grass!
