The horse from this video is suffering from “mud fever” and that’s why he has it difficult to give its hind legs. This experienced farrier wanted to demonstrate the process of trimming the hooves of two Belgian Draft in Flanders, Belgium, and our advice is not to practice the same thing without “stocks” the metal frame.
Mud fever is a disease that causes irritation in the lower limbs of horses, and very often it is caused by a mixture of bacteria. This draft horse is probably not feeling comfortable and he is repeatedly kicking with his hind legs. Luckily, he is in good hands and that farrier knows how to handle the situation.
He tries to calm down the horse and at the end, the hard work is done. Find out more from the video!
