Christina learning how to trim and rasp hooves

More than one area professional farrier has told us that we have quite a shortage of professional farriers in our area. So, we are learning to do some of it ourselves. Christina is rasping Spirit every 7-10 days, trying to get rid of the cracks in his hooves that may be caused from his hooves "flaring."
Doesn't look too stressful for Spirit, does it!

of course, back hooves too!
