I do want to make one point. You still need to trim their feet. You would never trim them after the 3rd month of being pregnant. If you don't it can cause more strain on the pasterns and legs leading to more trouble. More pain, they are laying down more, thus not eatting hay to keep warm and feeding the kids inside her. Plus a lack of exercise leads to Ketiois & or milk fever.
