So it was time to trim hooves again, I'm trying to find the balance of my new Mini Nubian's hooves. I just trimmed the girls two weeks ago, but I hadn't trimmed my baby buck in a couple months because he's stinky and extremely hormonal, and it was past time. I did my normal headlock between my knees and the front hooves went without much of a hitch. I grab his back left hoof and he freaked. Side note: he's only 9 months old so he was much smaller and younger the last time I trimmed. He started kicking, and if there's anything I've learned with animals it's: don't let go. I held on for dear life, keeping in mind to not let his hip twist and hurt him, when he flops dramatically on his left side and lays perfectly still. I was pretty surprised, but decided to take advantage of him not moving and finish his hooves. When I was done I let his hooves go and he stood up and was perfectly fine! I've never had a goat act like that! I get a picture of his drama, but took these right after.
