Found the Farrier! (a horse thing) [Aug. 15th, 2014|04:24 pm]

My farrier and I have been not connecting for several weeks, while Mac's hooves continue to grow, which is not good for a horse with bad hooves and chronic lameness issues.  I had lost (I thought) Brian's card with his phone number on it, and the number posted on the wall returned no answer--not even a machine to leave a message on, and I knew the old old number (in my cellphone) was wrong.  So.  R- went out to the feed store and found ONE of Brian's cards tacked to the bulletin board and copied down the number.  It's the same as the number posted on my wall here, but today when I called Brian answered.

Horse people know that one's farrier is even more important than the hay supplier, unless you're capable of doing your own trimming (I'm not.   I managed it with my first horse but not since.  Ky was exceptionally patient with me.)  So Tuesday Mac will get trimmed, and Monday I will spend time soaking his hooves, because the rain earlier this week is long gone and the hot oven that is usually August in Texas is blowing over us.

And yes, I've now added Brian's number in the computer.

What a relief to find the number and have it work.

Woot on getting an appointment. I'm glad that Mac will let you soak his hooves. Dancer was very much of the opinion that her hooves should NOT be in water. I'm VERY glad we never had to soak her feet.

As it happens, his feet didn't get soaked (I felt rotten yesterday and went to bed, and forgot to remind my husband to let the water trough overflow. But last week's rain and damp ground had kept them soft enough, even though it hasn't rained since.

Mac is trimmed up as well as a horse with his hooves can be.
