I’ve been meaning to get hold of a hoof stand for a while, I tend to tidy the boys feet between farrier visit and I think it’s important for any barefoot horse owner to know the basics of hoof trimming.
Now Hoof Jacks are beautiful and come in fancy colour and certainly look super smart, but the £200 price tag just seemed so steep for someone who just wants to be able to tidy feed up. That and I’m too frugal for my own good.
Yesterday I went and picked up car axel stands (£15 for 2 in halfords) and I’m super happy with them. They can hold up to 2t and are a little easy to tip but okay if you can teach your horse to stay extra still.
