Bad form?

Would it be considered bad form to hire a farrier other than the one who services our boarding farm? I'm not happy with the one who does it now - timeliness being the main factor - but I don't want to upset the apple cart 'cause the owner has been really good to us.

If you're not happy with how he works on your horses, that's your business. It's your responsibility to care for your horses however you see fit. It's nothing personal, it's just business.

The short answer is... no.

I work at several multi-farrier barns. Never been a problem.

Cheers,

Just make sure your barn owner doesn't have some rule about everyone using her farrier. I've only come across that once. Didn't make sense to me, but just throwing it out there.

The person you need to ask is the barn owner.

It shouldn't be a problem though out of courtesy you should check you're not thinking of engaging someone with whom they have a problem coming on the premises

Thanks, all. I def agree the first stop needs to be the owner and I wouldn't do anything until I talked to him - just wasn't sure how it would be taken. You know how folks can get sometimes - they read into things and get the wrong impression. My heartburn is not with the owner, just the farrier.

Thanks again for the input!
