Lol...not that I know of. Most of my family is spread out in Jefferson, Sevier, Knoxville, and GA. While I live in one county...my horse is in another.


The above farriers look really good. I believe I am going to call them and at the very least see if they are up for taking on new customers and if they would be willing to take a look at Romeo. I do want to get the vet out first to get xrays and a checkup done. That way I know exactly what we are going to have to work with.

I appreciate everyone helping me to understand this and to move forward with Romeo's care. Now I get to deal with calling the past farrier and trying to cancel without sounding like a snob. I already have the other appointment set up with him. We agreed on it beforehand. Is there a certain protocol for doing that or can I just tell him that I would prefer to go in a different direction?

Good plan. Don't rule out the possibility of taking the horse to one of them. It will increase your odds of getting on their client list.

The best protocol is to be forthright about the subject. Tell him you've found an AFA journeyman level farrier and want to see if he can do more for your horse.

Cheers,

Glad you got some recommendations- I was going to suggest looking on the AFA website for a CJF in your area, which doesn't guarantee a good farrier, but certainly increases the odds, but Mark did the work already
