Violette: Pretty Neighs, Dear Friends! Today, we want to tell you about our new shoes as The Big V and I were both fitted on Wednesday. Let me tell you, it was high time! I usually only wear shoes on my front feet and I had lost one so I wasn't walking very straight. As for the Big V, he was totally barefoot and that big boy needs them on all four feet for the kind of work he's going to be doing. The great news is that Mr. N, the farrier who used to shoe us initially, and who is wonderful, had agreed to take us on again. So, on Wednesday, he came and Mr. E came with him.
It was raining so they brought me in a little before so my feet could dry. Diddle guarded me:
Getting a trim on all four hooves:
Getting the shoes fitted:
Ta Daaaaa! Lovely footwear for the fashionable equine girl!
Vidock: As I am going to start pulling carts and will be going on the road, I needed shoes on all four feet this time. I also started with a good trim:
Mr. E made sure I behaved myself:
It's a fiery business getting those shoes fitted properly!
And here I am, all proud of my new shoes!
Thanks, Mr. N and Mr. E!
