I picked up two extra trimming clients yesterday. Andrew came with me for one of my regular trims to watch. After, someone else asked if I had time to trim their horse too. Of course I said yes.

I'm a talker when I trim. I like to give a little mini lesson to the owner if they are curious about it. Most people love to hear about their horse, but I need to be mindful that I don't give an information overload!

Andrew said he was proud of me. It has been a long time since he has seen me trim. I don't think he had ever seen me trim a client horse actually.

When I trim, I feel like I am doing exactly what I was meant to do with my life. Help horses, help owners. It is like a passion within a passion, the crazy hoof girl who looks at a horse's feet before it's face when she meets it.

I just wanted to share my little business growth over the weekend, how it made me feel (content and happy). This morning, I'm off to trim three more! Then ride this afternoon. Life is good.

Sometimes my farrier is chatty - sometimes not. I like when he talks and explains the changes in our horses feet and why he trims and shoes them a certain way.

Yeah for more clients!
