ugg. my two new bucks. when they were babies they werent given much human interacting...execpt feeding, I'm working with them so they arent so wild. so today I started on trimming hooves on the genemaster. I had his head tied to a fence post..his horns dont fit in my stand. his hooves are L-O-N-G, to the point of curling upwards and turning in. on one side of the hoof I got it perfect. then he started acting up...so I let him off, gave him a drink then tried again to no avail. his feet are hard as rock...so I got a pan of water to put his foot in. that didnt work well . I flipped him on his side which took some work, then soaked his feet. and took my clippers up again and just barely sliced through the hoof. my arms were tired from fighting him so I let him up and he went to eat. so all of that work and I got one 1/2 of a hoof done in 1 hour. and he's the small one, the boer is twice as big and more scared of me. :help: I figure i'll take it really slow so nobody gets hurt..including me. and tommorrow is deworming and blood drawing day!! :wink: How do you all handle your big bucks?
