Routine Maintenance .....

Our local farrier visited Wild Rose Farm yesterday to trim the guardian donkey's hooves. She doesn't get shoes, just a trimming. It takes a couple of experiences with this for horses, mules, and donkeys to stand quietly for the procedure. It's really just like having your nails trimmed. We are careful to wipe her down with fly spray just before we start, so there's nothing buzzing around those lightning quick feet! She is also distracted with a handful of treats while Scott does the trimming and filing.
