Preview: Robert Jukes : First Shoes on a Three Year Old

First time shoeing for a horse can a frightening experience especially when it involves hot shoeing. To avoid problems, master farrier Robert Jukes explains how to better approach and handle the horse to reduce its stress. He also explains why a different environment for the horse can mean different treatment for the hoof. In this instance, the horse is going to Colorado for the summer where the ground is softer, there is more rain and what that means for a horse that, potentially, could form an abscess in those conditions. Robert also talks about basic hoof care for all horse handlers.

Part 1
Robert explains how this horse is going from Weatherford, TX to Colorado for the summer and why the difference in the ground and the weather will play a part in how the horse is shod. On top of that, this particular horse has an issue with its hoof that could worsen with the move, so Robert takes that into consideration also.
Part 2
Robert continues to give solid advice for settling a 3-yr-old when when it's being shod for the first time, particularly with hot shoeing.
