Meet my very 1st horse, Lazarus.
I couldn't wait for Santa anymore or ask one more time for a pony for my bday (after age 30 it got embarrassing). I took matters in my own hands and I finally decided to pick a pony that needed a new home. Laz found me as I contemplated with this idea. He was sweet yet very sassy, fresh off the track, Thoroughbred (OTTB).

whittle whittle whittle at a time....

These are from yesterday (sunday)
 There is still a lot of wedge in the toe area but my goal is to rasp it enough just so it doesn't hit ground when he trots.
I rasped, lunged him (he is sound sound sound right now!!) and trimmed a bit more...



 I'll be so happy when the heel backs up to support the back of his foot.
I rasped the heel wall to allow the tubules to try to stand up vs being crushed/under run...
we'll see if it works.

Saturday morning
This sleepy fluff head stands for 40 minutes like an ANGEL so I can Clean Trax his hoof
Worth his weight in gold
So, what do you do for 40 minutes?!
Selfies....




 You can sheaths (I'll spare you any photographic evidence)...
You trim Tina Turner manes 
PS I'm keeping it long for winter protection 
 A bit cleaner and oh SO nerdy

 "Bored, I'z bored"
Don't let him fool you, he is quite used to and loves his 'spa treatments' and to be doted on 
Such a clown

  2. On that 2nd pic, the LH looks GREAT!!

    Laz is an adorable goofball, and don't even get me started on how you can go to the barn in a chic white scarf and be all clean and cute, despite grooming your boy! ;-)

  3. P.S. That bruising on the RH--is that from the too-tight cast?

    1. I think it's a combo of cast and unbalanced pressure

  4. I always love yours and Laz selfies! :D Such a character! His hoof is looking better. I've never seen such a wonky hoof before. I'm so, so happy he's sound though. I do have a question about heels though. When you rasp them back because they are underrun do you take them all the way down to the sole? I was working on Chrome's heels because they are getting underrun too and my farrier told me to always leave a tiny bit of heel... how do I ever get his heels and toes back if I'm never rasping down to the sole? Someone please help me with my confusion lol. Thanks!
