Buttercup needed a manicure as her feet had been neglected by her previous owner. Her front hooves had grown too long and then broke off in places.
Buttercup was patient for about all of ten minutes - just long enough for me to get one of the front feet clipped and rasped. She wanted no part of us messing with the second front hoof and back feet were out of the question.
First foot done, Miss Buttercup decided she had had enough and layed down on us. Little did she know that wouldn't get her out of getting her other feet done. It actually made it easier on all of us!
After the trimming was done, Miss Buttercup got a good slathering of Hooflex on all sides and the bottom of her hooves.
