I have had some unexpected expenses so I am going to have to start doing the horses hooves myself. I went out and got Biscuit today - ugh - raining at the barn. I brought him up and put Cowboy Magic in his mane - he had witch's knot's in his mane. I let it sit while I was talking to Lee Ann.
I soaked his front left hoof in Lysol. He has mud scratches from all of the wet conditions. I cleaned his feet andthen started rasping his front hooves. They have grown like crazy. Mike did them 4 weeks ago and then I did them 3 weeks ago. He gave me a little flack but not too bad.
I was able to get the witch's knot's out with just a little bit of trouble. I then washed his mane and tail with Orvis, then soaked them on blueing and rewashed it.
His tail is stained on the ends. I need to soak it more and hope to get it whiter. He has a white mane and tail for the most part but poop and dirt take their toll.
I will do his back hooves tomorrow.
