  • ✪ Trimming Hooves for Goats and Sheep
  • ✪ How to evaluate and judge hay and forage


Today we're gonna show you how to trim hooves on small ruminants. It goes for anybody that owns sheep and goats. This is the equipment that I normally use when I trim feet. I have my orange nippers, my brush, I have large nippers and some small nippers - when you really get into some bad feet you can get a little bit more leverage with the bigger nippers. And I also have our electric hoof knife. It comes with different grinding settings, so you can either be aggressive or not as aggressive, depending on what type of hoof you're running into. Managing healthy hooves on small ruminants is a very important job for any manager that works with goats or sheep. I want to show you how I trim feet. I first get a brush and clean them off - each hoof, in between the toes and around. Then, I have like my nippers which I like to use, are the little orange ones, they work very well. I find the hoof that I think is the most ideal type in shape and I work on that hoof first and I trim around any loose material for any overgrown material and between the toes and all the way around on the surface - keeping keep in mind you want to keep everything flat. So, then I work it my way around from one hoof to the other hoof keeping my shears parallel to the hoof, just so everything works out even so I have weight distribution that's evenly put across the ground and does not interfere with the goats mobility. Then, I noticed when I was trimming her she had a white line crack in between her hooves there on the outside wall, so I decided I'd clean it out just to open it up and let it air out see if there's any bacteria or foul smell and everything looked pretty good but I just dug a little bit deeper just to open it up and see if I can find it if there's any issues that you would be able to notice it at this time, but everything looks pretty good so I'm just cleaning it up a little bit so she can go on her merry way. And that's basically how you trim a foot.

In 2002, after redistricting, Severson ran for the newly redrawn Minnesota House District 14A and won defeating DFL nominee Dennis Molitor 49%-47%.[5] In 2004, he won re-election to a second term with 62% of the vote.[6] In 2006, he won re-election to a third term with 54% of the vote.[7] In 2008, he won re-election to a fourth term with 55% of the vote.[8]


He was House Republican Minority Whip.[9] He co-sponsored a bill that would eliminate second-hand smoke in bars and restaurants.[10] In 2008, he supported Republican Governor Tim Pawlenty when he vetoed a $3.2 billion budget increase paid for by higher taxes.[11] In 2009, he introduced an amendment to the Minnesota State Constitution to prohibit marriage or civil unions between same-sex couples.[12]

Committee assignments

Severson was a member of the House Agriculture, Rural Economies and Veterans Affairs Subcommittee for the Veterans Affairs Division, and the Finance subcommittees for the Housing Finance and Policy and Public Health Finance Division, the Public Safety Finance Division, and the Transportation Finance and Policy Division.[13]

2010 Secretary of State campaign

In October 2009, Severson announced that he had filed the paperwork to run for Minnesota Secretary of State, seeking the Republican Party's endorsement for his candidacy at their 2010 state convention.[14] He received the party's endorsement on April 29, 2010,[15] and challenged incumbent Secretary of State Mark Ritchie in the November 2010 general election.[16]

In his filing for Secretary of State, Severson sought to be listed using his Navy pilot call name Doc Severson, some thought it to be an allusion to former Tonight Show band leader Doc Severinsen. Severson was challenged because he had not previously appeared on the ballot with the nickname "Doc." Severson stated the nickname had been given to him as he went through flight training and followed him through his 22 year career.[17]

Severson ran for Secretary of State on the contention that there was widespread fraud in the recount of the 2008 Senate election and a requirement that voters show a Photo ID to vote.[18] Incumbent Democratic Secretary of State Mark Ritchie won re-election and defeated Severson 49%-46% .[19]

Klobuchar was re-elected in a landslide.[citation needed]

2014 Secretary of State campaign

Severson ran for Secretary of State again in 2014. After winning the party endorsement ahead of former State Senator John Howe, Severson was unopposed in the primary election. He lost the general election to Democratic State Representative Steve Simon by 901,450 votes (47.04%) to 879,022 (45.87%).[citation needed]
