It’s that time of year when we have to start trimming hooves. When we start trimming the hoof we first dig out the dirt on the hoof, then we trim the walls, then we trim between the toes where the heels meet, and finally we trim the heels. Trimming hooves is very important. We need to trim the goats hooves so they don’t rot, but also for showing, the judge checks our goats hooves. Regular hoof care is a part of good goat ownership.
