    My question is what in the world was he doing in all that time. My farrier could have done two sets of specialty glue ons in that time frame

    Oh I did ask questions, and he was very thorough-and the farrier we had do them last (around the corner where they were boarded before they came home) was almost as much. That farrier is the one who recommended this one. I like him- but was just checking $$. I know in many parts of the country it is cheaper.

    Even so, that is a big difference for within our little state. I am in Bethany. Big horse country around here-so there are many farriers to choose from- all about the same $$. I like this guy - he is very thorough and explains what he's doing and why.

    Wow $390? I want to become a farrier and move there!!

    That's crazy! I'm in an expensive, horsey area of California and I paid $400 to have all 7 of mine trimmed and 2 of them got front shoes.

    Dallas Texas average is around $40 trim, $90 front shoes, $150 four shoes. Pads or special shoeing issues may be higher, but always ask before setting an appointment with a new farrier.

    The last time I had front shoes only on mine was 75.00 here in E Tx,trim only is about 45.00 give or take

    I pay $30 a trim. Even if it takes longer, it's only $30. My trainer who uses the same farrier once had a horse with a giant nail stuck in its hoof. Took the farrier 4 hours to get it out. Was still only $30.

    I have heard of people around orange paying $250 for a set or shoes and $100 for a trim. That is getting close to your prices... Plus any additions to the shoes. And much more on the ny/ct boarder. I would be curious about the breakdown... Just ask him. And maybe call around to other farriers if you don't like it. But if he does a good job and is good with your horses....

    I've paid $150 for a trim and front shoes before, so I can imagine it. I pay $70 for a trim with my current barefoot trimmer. I have a draft cross with draft sized hooves, so a lot of farriers charge a bit extra to do her and I'm in an expensive area.
