The Horses Get A Manicure
Yesterday, the farrier came to trim and shape the horses hoofs. Sandy went first and then Cheyenne.
Cheyenne is a grey horse normally but it pretty dirty with the snow melting and her rolling in the pasture. You can tell she still has most of her winter coat, which is good, because in spite of the sunshine and blue skies, it was freezing cold with wind today!
You can really see how dirty she is in this photo. The Farrier is clipping her hoof.
And here he is filing the front of the hoof and shaping it. That half moon white shape on the ground is some hoof trimmings. The dirt was picked out of her hoofs.
Nearly all the snow is gone now. Here is the last of it in front of the cottage.
