Joe is a member of the Midland County Horse Patrol and earlier this year, the Texas Criminal Justice gave a Man Hunt class using inmates and dogs. While at the event, Joe got to visiting with the inmate that did the trimming and horse shoeing at the prison. The inmate was very interested in barefoot trimming and already had "Making Natural Hoof Care Work For You" by Pete Ramey. The Prison's field horses are currently barefoot but the callout horses are still in horse shoes. Later this particular inmate asked a guard if Joe could come back to the prison and give some pointers. Joe agreed and it was cleared. In addition other prisons were also invited to attend Joe's presentation.
Sporting an EasyCare cap, Joe the barefoot trimmer discusses the Easyboot Glove.
Joe said things went real well. He made a few suggestions and gave a few trimming pointers making for a great day of trimmin' in the Big House.
