Since the ground was still pretty damp from the thunderstorm on Friday, the goat’s hooves were soft. It’s a lot easier to trim hooves when they’ve been running around on soggy ground for a few days. Got everybody taken care of but trimmed Stormy’s hooves a bit close and she was bleeding for a while. Stuck her in the kid pen for a few hours so she wouldn’t be stepping in poopy mud until the bleeding stopped. I’ve noticed that Stormy, Pan & Chop Suey’s hooves don’t grow nearly as fast as do the rest of the goats. Not sure if it’s a Nigerian trait or if it’s because they have black hooves.
