Yesterday it snowed, and it just happened to be the day the farrier came.
I think the weather change affected the horses more than normal because they've been shedding off and then when those temperatures drop, like yesterday--brrrrr...
They were all very hungry and grumpy and had a "hard" eye. I knew I'd have my work cut out for me as I led each one out of their stall to tie in the center aisle. They were pawing and banging, switching tails--not a pretty sight.
I may have made a mistake in choosing Beautiful to be trimmed first, but I thought it would be best to get it out of the way. She's very tuned into the others, plus an attitude that's all her own, and she gave the farrier a stare down like--you come in here with that box and there's going to be trouble.
Because of that, I didn't have any opportunity to get pictures. I was too busy managing her away from the farrier when she'd pull back her hooves and try to bolt out of the stall.
I think this was a product of many things--the day (which for a wild horse probably sent off some warning bells), the other horses, being a mare, and not being handled by any one other than me for so long (lack of exposure).
My farrier spent a lot of extra time with her--touching her all over her body and rubbing her. Eventually, she settled and the head dropped, eye softened, and she gave her feet up.
