    Noodlette Jnr. has a fascination with collecting "things". Here is a picture of her latest collection, with a standard size wine glass to give perspective re size. Anyone hazard a guess as to what her latest collection is?

    That's no hobby. That's a calling.

    So basically, she has a collection of toenail clippings. Nice.

    Looks like you might have a budding smithy in the house?

    Right. Haven't read more than the first post but I'm thinking those are horse hoof clippings.

    Is there a prize? :angry:

    OK then - guess how many ponies are in the field at the bottom of my garden?

    No, unfortunately there are 3 - guess what I've been roped into doing tomorrow? :angry::thumbsup:;)

    Well, what's the point in only half-heartedly collecting something...

    How do you cut them off? Is it a bit like a cheese wire on a handle?
    Do you need to heat it up?

    The farrier either uses a tool called a hoof cutter (funnily enough! :biggrin:) or a toeing knife or a drawing knife.

    They are not my ponies, so I am not sure how they were trimmed - our horse has considerably larger feet, as elder Noodlette can testify, following getting her foot stood on last week :thumbsup::blush: Ouch! I await her toenail falling off, but hopefully this will not be added to the "collection" :angry:
