I have a mammoth donkey that has developed a bad habit of kicking at Farriers. Unlike horses they can kick sideways making this very dangerous for the farrier and they pretty much universally are refusing to come out and clip his feet. His feet are starting to get bad and I feel like I am running out of options.
I heard a suggestion from someone to just have him sedated mildly each time, but that means I have to pay for a vet visit with a farrier each time, which could get prohibitively expensive.
I've heard that this is a common problem with donkeys, but am not hearing any practical solution for foot/hoof care. Anyone have any advice for dealing with this situation?
