How to get a horse used to hot fitting?
My horse has recently started having his shoes hot fit when shod. He isn't horrible about it but definitely pulls back some and hops around a little. I've tried distracting him during it and the farrier is very patient with him but I'd like for him to be better behaved. How can I help him to become more accepting? He is the only horse in the barn that is hot fit so he can't "watch" others so any advice?
ETA: It seems the noise is more the issue as the last time he was done there was a decent breeze through the barn that blew the smoke away from him.
