That's what several different people told me. I had a farmer who moved to TN where I was living at and he said he had to go back cause we were starving him. We pay $70 for shoes all around. He said it was $300 plus. My in-laws said the same thing.
I have never lived there so I am going on what I was told. I wish someone would have told me I was going to pay $140 when I moved to GA. I should have staid in TN.

The most I've ever her of some one paying was $100 for all 4 with shoes. If the horse had special needs then I can see it getting up there in price but I've NEVER herd of some one paying $300 for a regular trim and shoe

Great that you can keep her Bare foot. I was not trying to start and argument just putting out what several people had told me.

Are you moving during the spring summer or winter?
I know that moving during the summer can cause some problems with the climate change.
We got a new horse in the barn this summer that was from MI. She stopped sweating and has freaked out about the bugs.

Not sure yet, really depends on when our house sells! But hopefully soon, so we're hoping fall/winter.

Yeah, Sandie is pretty sensitive to insects, but I have a friend who moved from this area down to South Florida and her horses seemed to adjust fine. This year in Ohio has been a HORRID year for bugs...we're at a record for rainfall so everything has just been muddy and disgusting all year long (and still is!!) which of course has invited plenty of flies and mosquitos and crap everywhere

Well come on down we take the farm to fla every winter. Leaving the 22 for ocala area. Sand collic just feed the wet beat pulp and have never had a problem and we race in the sand.,75 and 100 mile races. As far as shoeing. All 32 of the horses in the barn are all bare foot the sand makes there feet hard as rocks, and great on the frog also. So there you saved money in 2 places and can pay more for stall. If like to learn how to bare foot trim your own horse be glad to show you.

Awesome! I can't wait to not have to deal with knee deep MUD all the time like we do up here! I swear, after as much rain as we got this year, it took the pastures 3 weeks of NO rain just to START to dry up and then last night we had a horrid thunderstorm that soaked everything all over again ugh...every horse in the barn has rain rot to some degree from the damp warm year we've had. And in another couple weeks it'll be snowing, yay...:roll:

It would be neat to learn how to barefoot trim my own horse, but I'd be a little afraid, don't want to mess up her feet! Most trims are only about $35 so I usually just pay that for the security of knowing I'm not going to totally mess up her angles and all that!

Hey! Welcome to Florida (early)!
I can't give too much information about Ocala boarding, since I live near Miami.
BUT I can recommend an AMAZING barefoot farrier who lives in Ocala, and he comes down and does Eli for us.
MOST farriers I found, end up messing the feet up worse -we got one who was "good", but he trimmed Eli's bare hooves so bad, that my boy had back pain afterwards.

Then we found this guy, he's incredible. He does only bare feet, and he's a wealth of knowledge. However, he does charge $50 - but I completely believe it's worth it.
If you want, I can PM you his name and number. (:

Yes please do, never know who I'll have available at the barn I'm looking to board at (in Clermont area), and it's always good to have some references!
