Yesterday was SPA day for my goats. This wonderful service includes a free pedicure and two necessary vaccinations. All of this followed by a wonderful dusting of lice powder. Their reward? Some tasty oats. They were pretty happy with those oats, so I’m thinking they feel it’s worth it. I certainly do! Vaccinations for CDT and worms, dusting for lice, and well, the pedicure is a necessary (and aerobic) task to keep hooves in good shape. Trimming hooves is exercise for the human owner as well…something along the lines of kick, kick, snip. Kick, kick, snip. Good technique allows you to snip when the hoof is present, not your hand. Don’t ask me how I know this……..
