Foal Trimming and Handling

I acquired my first weanlings in 2000. One of these ended up suffering from chronic laminitis and helped me start my hoof care journey in 2009. I left my career training race horses to pursue hoof care full time as my passion grew. While I enjoy working on healthy horses and rehabilitation cases, I have developed a love for working on young horses and foals in particular. This is where my heart truly lies. To see the hoof structure of a newborn adapt and change to meet the demands of it’s life and environment, and grow into a healthy adult hoof is absolutely fascinating!
