Last week I was soaking Sarge's hooves in Lysol. He had a little knot of sole on the back left where he has the split. I used my circular knife to pop it off. There was a slight red spot underneith. Didn't seem to be an abscess - just a bruise. I started rasping his hooves in the front and he kept pulling his feet from me. UGH Sarge can be such a toot at times. He kept pulling them and I kept hanging on to them. He got a few smacks for being a jerk about it. Then he pulled them again and pulled me right off of the stool and I fell back on the concrete.
I finally got his front feet done. I was wet and dirty. Yay...NOT.
The next day I went out and did his back feet. I also gave him a bath and brushed out his mane and tail.
