Re: Need assistance with trimming hooves and BCS
Do you have any recommendations regarding brand of rasp and where I could purchase a high quality one? We bought a "Tough-1 farrier rasp" from Tractor Supply. which seemed fairly decent but wasn't very expensive. I suppose you get what you pay for so probably will need to upgrade. Over-all I would say Apollo is fairly easy to trim although better easier with front than back hooves. Personally, I think a hoof stand would make rasping easier but a good one is expensive. Farrier's coming to do trim tomorrow. Interestingly, Apollo doesn't seem to outgrow his Cloud boots between every 4 week trims. Maybe that's part of his problem, i.e. slow hoof growth. Hopefully, that will improve with more time on a better diet.
