Farrier work

February 6th, 2020

Farriers are the professionals who care for the horse’s hooves. They are an important part of the equine management team. Most farriers are familiar with specific breeds of horses and their needs by studying at a training school, serving an apprenticeship, and then becoming licensed or certified. This extensive hands-on training is vital to becoming a professional farrier.

Hoof care is very important for thoroughbred horses. Picking, trimming and shoeing are general aspects of hoofcare. Below Old Tavern Farm broodmare manager, Trina Pasckvale shares how the yearlings at the farm get regular hoof care. In the video, Comme Chez Soi’19 is getting a regular trim and being sales prepped for the spring. Yearlings get a trim approximately once a month and that is done on a regular basis to keep them correct.

Comme Chez Soi19 has been weaned and she is doing well with all her buddies and paddock mates at Old Tavern Farm. Greg Daley shares an update on her and the mare, Comme Chez Soi below. 

Porkchop and Walter, the cat are also content. Walter takes good care of the barn and Porkchop stays with the chickens when he isn't trying to "rearrange" the landscaping. Enjoy their photos below.  

Comme Chez Soi and filly at Old Tavern Farm in the summer

Trina Pasckvale, Broodmare Manager at Old Tavern Farm drove us over to their nearby paddock to check in on four mares and foals. The foals are quite social with one another and said hello when we arrived. Trina greets them and sprays them down with bug spray as flies and bugs can be an issue in the summertime heat. She does so quite often to ensure they stay comfortable. Comme Chez Soi and filly were taking in the summer air and Comme Chez Soi19 was quite sweet but particularly playful with Trina, nipping at her toes. Check out the video below for an update from the farm.
