Re: My horse is funny with his legs.
Yeah, my cob mare used to pick her hind feet up pretty smartish as well, but she's got used to me over the years, and she knows if it's picking out then I'll always do the near side front first, and then work round.
So if I make move direct on to a hind, then she knows it's almost certainly brushing, and not time to pick up a foot, lol.
And wagonsroll, picking out feet is a bit of a bummer for me as well, as you bend over, pick out, stand up straight and on to the next, and it all starts again....and with low blood pressure I can get a bit dizzy and light headed so have to do it all very slowly, lol !!
