Today, Zach Rich of Palmetto Horse Shoeing came to the farm to learn how to trim goat's hooves. He has been getting a lot of requests for goat trimming and wanted to get some experience. Zach worked trimming my Boer goat's hooves for about 3 hours and I finished the job 3 hours later. While we had them in the goat worker, I also trimmed tails and checked eyelids using the FAMACHA method and dewormed some of the goats. Zach is a graduate of the Carolina School of Horseshoeing in Florence, South Carolina and can be reached at 336.480.5873. Later, Zach is going to get some experience learning to trim our sheep and llama's hooves.
