Thanks for the responses all. I know she is stressed because she's out of work... It's happened to a lot of folks lately, and I am sympathetic. But he didn't HAVE to give her that discount... he did so to be kind. I feel like he's a farrier worth keeping, personally... Even if she doesn't.
Based on what ya'll say, I have come to my sense and I don't think $35 is too much for a trim. Even if the roomie decides to try and find someone cheaper, I will be sticking with this guy.
And speedracer, you're right. I'm surprised he didn't tell her where to go right then and there. I might have, in his position.
EDIT: I just had a thought. Maybe I'll go out today and take photos of the trim, and you all can tell me if I'm getting a proper job done for the price...
We drink to our youth, to the days come and gone; for the age of oppression is now nearly done.
