No Pain No Gain

Or in this case Loss.

I finally was able to do my horse's hoof trims on Sunday. And I did Jenna too. Which means in all, I trimmed 22 hooves (Dottie has front shoes).
Today I was reminded why I normally spilt the group into two when I could barely walk. It is amazing the muscle soreness I am feeling. Farrier work addresses different muscles then riding does. But with multiple horses, doing the work myself saves us a lot of money. So I gained pain and my horses lost excess hoof.

I am going to hobble off to bed, but I leave you with some pictures.
