Today was the day for goat pedicures at High Hopes. Nothing but luxury here! We are rookies at the goat hoof trimming experience, but here’s how it goes.
Paullina is led into the barn to the goat stanchion for trimming.
Here’s a before picture of a very overgrown goat hoof.
Linda hard at work trimming the hoof. It doesn’t hurt the goat, but the material is very hard and needs special goat shears.
Here’s a newly trimmed hoof.
A picture of all 4 hooves neatly trimmed!
Besides this, we also got the chicken house shoveled out and lots of mowing and trimming around this year’s tree planting.
