Time to Trim

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, 🙂
