Pearl's Mani and Pedi

While my parents were here, I took advantage of my dad's skills.  I asked him to please bring his horseshoein' tools so he could take care of Pearl's feet.  They had grown out so bad.  I'm a bad donkey owner!  Most of them had broken off but they still needed tended too.

Dad was gracious enough to help his daughter out. ;)




I sure wish my parents lived closer.  There are lots of things they could teach us.  He had tried to tell me before that I or the husband could trim them.  Just get a rasp and nippers.  But I told him I didn't think it was that easy!

Thank goodness for parents!

We have a stand similar to that in the garage....it belonged to Greg's dad when he was working horses.....

Sure wish I had gotten to visit with your family while they were here, they just didn't stay long enough. Maybe next time......

It's not that easy. I've tried it. I don't have enough strength in my hands to nip off a thing while still controlling where the nipping is done, minor little detail. I can't believe how tough a hoof can be. Farriers make it look so easy..........it is NOT easy.

Kellys said...

NO WE DON'T HAVE ONE IN THE GARAGE!!! I just remembered that Greg sent that stand to you guys....yes, you can do the trimming, you got part of the equipment!!!

Screw that--way too hard of work, especially donkey feet. They are like diamonds they are so hard.

Pay a man--cheap insurance for your back

Pearl looks like she's co-operating nicely!

It's great that he was able to help. And you could trim yourself - I do all of mine.
