Thunder is a miniature horse who was originally rather neglected and not all that keen on humans! He also badly needed a haircut of his mane, so that he could see, and his hoove also needed trimming. The latter has taken a while, as we needed to build some trust with him so that we could do his nails without being kicked. Eventually we arranged for a very nice professional hoof-trimming laydee to come out to whisper him - though he wasn't very good at balancing on three legs. However, in the end he apparently went quite submissive once he had his leg up and had regained his balance, he just nuzzled into her. He was very well behaved and impressed us all. We also gave him another hair trim and he looks so cute with his wee hair cut.
