Hoof trimming
« on: March 07, 2014, 12:08:57 am »
I know this is about goats but it's so funny that it's worth sharing. As I can't manage to trim the goats' hooves any more, a friend came round to help together with my OH. I supervised. We did it inside as it was so cold out and all was going relatively well: one goat done and the other with her front hooves done. Friend was sitting on the milking bench with Pom's back end towards her ready to do the back hooves when Pom did what goats do best - straight down friend's front. I laughed so much I nearly fell off my stool. :roflanim:


I think it must be this particular friend as a few years ago we were doing hooves and she was helping to hold her. Pom usually prefers to lie down and friend was lying across her back end with her nose about six inches about Pom. Naturally, Pom chose that moment to poo. Friend's face went purple and I couldn't hold the shears for laughing.
