Hoof mark ups


Lavinia, just a quick thank you for the mark ups and especially for the directions and narratives you include with them to members. For those of us who trim our own horses, they are invaluable. I read each and every word and go back and study the markups to train my eye and learn. Virtually every time, I get my own eyes recalibrated for my horses and can see where I am leaving toes too long.

Thank you again for the excellent and badly needed education.

Hi Dawn,

You are more than welcome - glad you find them helpful.

Also, thanks for highlighting that although any given set of mark-ups is specifically tailored to the horse in question, the general principles are based on what a healthy foot should look like on any horse. They are meant to encourage all members to take a peek and compare the info being given about that particular set of feet to what is happening with their own herd. I try to include the why as well as the what and some how so that it (hopefully) makes sense to whomever is reading.

Anyone is welcome to chime in and ask questions about any part that is unclear. It's the basis of what this group is all about.
