Ballerina feet - minis go en pointe

Even the little guys need good foot care.  But the trouble is if you have a mini it can be hard to find.  I don't know why, but many foot care specialists can't be bothered with them.  Personally I love the little guys, even when they like to blunt their teeth on my backside :-)

This mini had 'classic' traditionally trimmed feet - something I see on horses of all sizes - so you could argue he had been treated just the same (unfortunately). Much longer headed in this direction and he would have been in danger of knuckling over.

We lowered the heels and rolled the tiniest walls ever. Took a bit of finesse but the little guy walked off better afterwards.

I'm in the USA, and all around me are minis with horrible feet! Partly due to the thinking that they are pets vs performance horses, as a couple of mini owners have told me. GRRRR, so they aren't entitled to stand and move comfortably? Makes my blood boil!
