I've been sick so much over the past 6 weeks that I have been putting off the strenuous task of trimming the goat's hooves. I was feeling a little better today, so decided to at least try and get a few done. Surprised myself by getting everyone but our herd sire Sunshine done. I would have done his too, but he wasn't in the mood to be caught and I didn't have the energy left to change his mind.
Every time I undertake this task I must say I wonder how people with larger breeds manage this chore. Dealing with the smaller sized Nigerians definitely has its advantages!
I came across a video on how to trim hooves this week that demonstrates one of the best explanations for how to do it that I've ever seen on-line and so I thought I'd share it just in case someone reading here is new to keeping goats.
