Sean's Mishap

Exhibit A: Sean could have had a stich or two on the thumb pad he sliced with the scissors while trimming Pepper's hoofs. We let it bleed, washed it  thoroughly, used hydrogen peroxide and a band aid, instead.
Hoof trimming scissors are sharp. Goats can and will move unexpectedly, especially while you are trimming their feet for them. And, they are thankless for your assistance. They do not look sorry or concerned about your loss of blood or flesh.

Goats are concerned if you might have a forthcoming treat still in your pocket. They will nuzzle their heads into your chest and make eyes at you, if such shameless pandering will further the possibility of your doling out another treat. It ususually does.

Ellie is finished. Pepper has had her back hoofs done. Jedi needs another go at his. Leah and Rachel are due for their introduction to feet trimming. And, we might as well get Asher and Abigail on the stand and used to this affront.

Hope you all have a great day!

  1. I am sorry your love man sustained an injury! I think it is a good idea to get the babies used to it. I wish I would have played with Desiray Dawn's paws when she was a kitten, now we have to take her to the vet to get her wonky nails trimmed and it is a big hassle.
