Hi, thanks, I just getting bit more confident in hoof trimming, but taking it slow, as not sure if doing it right by the book !, don't want to cause them lameness.
Not sure about trimming heal much yet either
Here's a picture to help guide you on hoof trimming. Hope it helps

Hey there Donna,
Just remember if you see pink STOP don't trim deeper as you're hitting the sensitive blood flow area. If by accident you do hit it just put iodine or wound kote on it. Practice makes perfect. If it helps, use a sharpie and draw a line parallel to the coronary band to show you how much toe and heel can come off carefully. You'll do great just remember to take small amounts off at a time.
Here's a video to help
