Time to Trim
Posted by on
With Summer upon us and the show season finished here in Australia its time to think of getting your horses feet in great condition what better time to take shoes off and go barefoot, if your horse is shod, and do some tidy up trims on your barefoot horses.
Horses have evolved over 65 million years and during that time they developed the ideal hoof to travel vast distances over a wide range of terrain, sometimes a speed, in order to survive. Their hooves are truly a wonderful thing that given the opportunity will regenerate and recover even from years of shoeing, bad trimming and even founder.
So why not take the time over summer to do some tidying up on your horses feet, if they need it, :)
