Wanted to share a few pix of the "Brat Pack" getting their feet trimmed today using our new Tripod Hoist! It was getting to hard for me to lift these guys onto our trimming table, so we bought a hoist to lift them up to trim their feet! It's called EZ Farm Porta Lift with Weighing Scale!

Here's a link to the lift! http://www.betterbarnyard.com/scales/

While we had them hoisted up, Wanalynn groomed them and gave them all a briadle path!

Her's some pix taken before trimming!

Here's me and Angel!



Here's me and Piggy!



Here's Lil Abner!



Here's Ellie Mae!



Here's me trimming Topsy!



Here's me working on Patches



While we were working Wanalynn saw a little bird fly into the hole in the middle of this rope, so I took her new camera and held it up to the hole and this is what we found! We think they are Wrens!

Here's the rope



And here's what the camera saw!

I don't know anything about you or your horses so forgive me if they were just rescued. Their hooves are in TERRIBLE condition. Are they all dwarfs? I am glad you found a way to help.

I believe they are all dwarfs from previous posts. He always posts them as the "brat pack"


I can't believe how calm all of them look
I bet it's much easier on you for sure

Great idea! They don't look scared at all. So trusting! These little ones are gorgeous! Just little bundles of joy!

God bless,

That's a great way to trim the hooves. They don't look like they mind at all!! They're all looking so good, especially that little Angel...

Well if that isn't just a really neat contraption. They all look like they are relaxed and enjoying their pampering. Today was hoof trimming day for all mine too along with beauty treatments and bridle paths. I'm bushed, but they are all happy and snuggled into bed!

That's a cool way to do it! They look great and it's obvious you care a lot about your little "brat pack". Why else would you do the things you do!!!!!


I think that sling would be great for a couple of my older mules.

Something about these pictures reminded me of kids at space camp. They all look happy to get off of their feet for a bit--so neat!

That is really cool!!! They do look happy to get off their feet. You could use that to do aqua massage! Just get a water trough and one of those bathtub jet spas and it would probably make their poor little legs feel better. Cute anyways!!

Floridachick - dwarf feet can grow extremely fast as they do not wear down the same way that a regular horse's feet do. They grow sideways - they grow forward, they roll under - it is a constant battle to keep up to them. I wish we had a sling like that for our Cowboy - we have to tip him over onto a bean bag chair to do his front feet...

Hi Cheryl,


Scooter is doing great! His feet are in great shape and he stands to get his trimmed! He's getting to be a big boy! I'll get some pix and post them for you to see! I forgot he wasn't in the sling pix!
