    Just bought this little cutie today! Everyone meet Frost Laced Dynamite. Aka Cody! (Not sure if we are keeping that barn name or not)
    Cody has never really been handled except for having a halter thrown on him twice. We have a lot of work to get done but are very excited to see his journey with us. We pick him on mid Feb![​IMG]

    Call him T&T, or Boom Boom, lol. That’s an interesting name for a cute little guy.

    Feet haven’t been done yet their farrier told them his feet don’t need them yet. They use the same vet as me and I have his vaccine records I didn’t ask how they got them done though

    I cant imagine his feet not needing a trim by now, mine have been done 3-4 times by 8 months.

    Yeah I was a little taken back by that also. We had my husbands colt done a few times before he turned 8 months also.
    Our farrier will be getting them done as soon as we get him home.

    While I believe in regular hoof care for foals, not everyone does. I keep my foals on a very short schedule made much easier as I do it myself. My 8 month old filly has been trimmed 5 times now.

    My mentor does the first couple trims free for foals under 6 months or so and halter broke. I've adopted that practice myself somewhat. It just sets the horse up so much better in the long run. Plus chances are I'll be trimming that baby as an adult and if I foot break it, I know they won't attempt to kill me later haha.

    Farriers are invaluable with babies this young....they may not need a full trim but they certainly DO need to know what a farrier is about, the trim process, handling of feet etc. That's why it important to keep them on a schedule, whether they need it or not.
