Hello Jack,

How long have the nails got? Horsfields do have quite long, thick nails to help them with their digging. It may be with waiting until they go outside because the daily wear and tear will help keep them in shape. If they causing probls or are starting to curl they cam be trimmed but I got a vet to show me how to do it.
