I love having barefoot horses. $30 trims over here! I would never ever ever pay what it costs in your area!

$190 for both horses, full sets of shoes. I don't begrudge paying him, that is backbreaking labor. I trim my own horses in the winter, I would gladly pay him to do that, but he won't unless I am hurt or something, he says I am perfectly capable of doing them, he is even thinking about giving me his old shoe pullers so I can pull the shoes in the fall, gee thanks.

What I want to know is why did he only trim the hinds on that horse you mentioned? I find it hard to believe the fronts did not need trimming, shoes or not.

The fronts were shod, that was part of the price. New shoes on the fronts, trim the backs.

trims here $35.00 to $50.00 depends on the farrier . The more they claim to be natural etc etc the more you pay, which is ridiculous as barefoot is natural or a mustang trim .
I pay 35 per horse , usually do 5 at a time, so he does not kill his back, and its nicer on the bank balance to not have to come up with the money to do all 10 at once. Plus I hate to stand out there for all the time it takes, chasing the dogs off the hoof trimmings, and I need to get another fenced yard for the dogs, but will still have 2 dogs loose that know how to climb fences.

Okay, so he DID trim and reset the fronts? Whew! I read that he left the fronts as they were and only trimmed the backs. Okay!

No, no..he trimmed all 4 on each of them. It's just that one of them only wears front shoes.
