In which the Red Horse Learns to Gear Down
Takota got his feet trimmed today, which was a pleasing occasion. He arrived with ugly mismatched angles and quarter flares (in spite of one remedial trimming already behind him, but such fixes must be made gradually). Now it’s 11 months later and his hooves have grown out healthy and strong; they’re holding their angles and showing no flare. Very nice!
Takota Red Horse is an interesting enigma. He really wants to be a good boy, but in so many ways, was never taught how. Well, he was for sure taught that standing quietly for the farrier was a Good Boy Thing. He demonstrated that quite ably today.
