These past few weeks I've had some interesting trimming to do, thought I'd make something of a more photo heavy post than usual and share a few of them with ya'll.
Here's the first project. This is Firefly, one of my favorite old ladies. For any of you who are familiar with the shape and size of horse knees, you may notice that hers aren't quite right.
Firefly has some arthritis issues, and tends to get very sedentary as her toes grow, as they have done here.
Performed a trim to try to minimize the movement in her knees and let fer feet roll where they want. . . hence the very short toe.
Poor ol' firefly isn't really headed for any competitions, but we do try to improve her quality of life as much as possible!
Then there are some donkeys that are trying to smuggle elf shoes. Here's the average example of a foot that just grew too long:
Working to bring the shape back into something like normal. . . . I've done a first pass on the bottom and started rasping the front back into alignment with the leg.
Front looking REALLY short because the heels are still too high,
And the finished product. . . Hopefully I'll see the donkey again before the same time passes!
Cheers gang! I'll try to post some more interesting pics as the fall goes along.
