Okay, I have a silly question. Do you have to trim hooves? When we bought our goats one had very long hooves, and before I could get to her, her hoof cracked and broke off, so now it is the right length. I have also noticed this in our horses, we have yet to trim them (there's NO WAY we could handle them, wild things!). Only ones that aren't doing this are the pigs, they look like elves (well, not quite!) , but they are getting butchered here shortly.
