Hoof Trimming

Trimming hooves is something
that every goat owner just has
to do. First, you need a good
restraining device. We do all
our hoof trimming on the milk
stand. Our goats are trained to
the stand at an early age. They
always get a treat just for
jumping up onto the stand.

Notice the black electrical
tape wrapped around my thumb.
This prevents MOST accidents
with the knife, which is kept very sharp.

The nail nippers are a handy
little addition to the tool box
and can be purchased from most
hardware stores. These cost only
about $3.00.
