Jack, the spotted horse with special needs, seen in the video below, has no problem getting the blacksmith eggs to trim his hooves. “Al, I love you for straightening your legs!” Jack’s owner talks behind the camera and the blacksmith jokes about marrying the beloved horse. Every responsible horse owner knows that foot care is essential to staying healthy.
Reality shows that hooves that grow too long or unevenly will eventually crack or break, damaging the muscles and tendons of the legs and ultimately disrupting the horse’s spine alignment. To avoid this problem, keepers should trim, trim and trim their hooves approximately every six weeks. Professional breeders know how to trim and balance a horse’s hooves and how to create a shackle that best suits the needs of the animal.
The condition and shape of each hoof, and the activity of the horse, play an important role in choosing the material, size, and shape of the hoof. Cropping the hooves is not a pain for a healthy horse. It’s very similar to cutting a person’s nails. Jack doesn’t seem to care about Al filing and polishing his hooves-he seems to be grateful for the pedicure!
