The horse’s hooves need to be well taken care of because they support the horse’s body weight.
They have to ensure that they are standing on a flat surface so that they can support and sustain their weight.
Because of this, a horse that has hooves that are not in good condition will be unable to move freely and will struggle to support its own weight.
In addition, the imbalance will put additional strain on the bones, tendons, and ligaments.
It is necessary to provide care for the hooves.
This Arabian stallion came into the Idaho Horseshoeing School with hooves that were exceptionally long.
It’s amazing that this horse can still walk, but he probably does it with a lot of trouble.
According to Riley Mickelsen, the owner of the school, it can take the hooves anywhere from two to three years to grow to a length that is comparable to the hooves of this Arabian stud.
Every four to six weeks, a horse has to have its hooves trimmed so that it can walk properly.
The horse had been ignored for some time.
Farriers are educated at the Idaho Horseshoeing School.
Riley Mickelsen explained: “A farrier … (is) somebody that specializes in horse hoof health. And they do so by trimming hooves and correctly placing different types of horseshoes.”
The fact that this horse has hooves that are so long is unquestionably going to present it with a great deal of difficulty.
They will, thank goodness, soon be back to normal.
