No offense, but if I were interviewing barns and you said these things to me, I would think you were a control freak and run the other way. LOL
I would want the option of having the farrier of my choosing, not who you choose for me.
If a barn charged approximately the same as other barns but included farrier trimming (if you used their farrier) but could use your own (just like the other barns) wouldn't that be a bonus? It's not like I'm charging way more.
Like I said, my thought was #1 Marketing edge.. being the only barn who does it. #2 convenience for me and them. Farrier blocking entrances taking up tacking space when everyone and their mom is at the barn. I usually have the farrier come in the morning that way everything is done and cleaned up by the time everyone comes out.#3 everyone saves a few bucks by buying in bulk so to speak.
Lol I thought it was genius.....guess I was wrong? I tried to create the kind of boarding barn I always wanted when I was a boarder; busy college student who had hell of a time coordinating withe the farrier. :o)
