Hoof Trimming Problems

Trying to trim the hooves of a complete herd on a  regular basis can be overwhelming if not impossible. Some animals can have difficulty walking if their hooves are not trimmed regularly. Other animals seem to either not need trimming or nature seems to keep their hooves trimmed with no human intervention.  The goat is very closely related to the deer. Have you ever wondered who goes out and trims the hooves all of the wild deer? Breeders have caused some of the requirement for the hooves needing trimmed. The more protein the goat is eating, the faster the hoof may grow.

We believe that the hoof trimming problem is a combination of maintenance and selective breeding. Here is the approach we will be taking.
