Does any one know of a place on the web were you can see what good goat hoofs look like and bad look like... We have a preg. doe due in March and her feet were done it November but they just do not look quit right now...But it could just be my mind playing tricks on me... or it just be because they are wet because of the snow.

Thank you for any help :)

I always remember that the bottem of the hoof should be paralell with tehe coronary band (the line where the hoof meets the hair) I also take just a little off the toe, some people trim dewclaws but i have never had a need to.
if you go to this site
http://www.munchinhill.com/index
their does are set up on cement and you can see the shape of the hoof from the side.
hope this helps
