    I love my farrier because

    He turns up on time, or calls to let me know that he is running late.

    He is so patient with Ben, who is given to random panic attacks.

    He has never ever got angry with Ben, or the babies when the are having their first trims.

    Even though he had the day from hell yesterday, and Ben was at his non charming worst for a short while, it was 8.30 pm and he still spent ages on Willow because he wasn't happy with her fronts.

    We hear lots of downer threads, so

    YIPPEE FOR GOOD FARRIERS especially mine!

    I love my farrier, too! He sets up the next appointment before he leaves, very patient with the ones that are skittish, honest and the best part: I leave a check in the tack room mail box and he gets the job done without me having to be there! Which is nice since he usually trims my horses at 8 in the morning and I'm at work!

    I also love mine, although it wasnt always like that. She's only a couple years older than me so just got into farrier work a few years ago. She does many clinics though and is always furthering her knowledge. Last trip she did was down to the states where she did multiple hours of hands on and written tests with a focus on pathologies of the hoof and how to correct them.
    She's put up with my stubborn to trim tb and we had him to the point where he was letting her do anything while being relaxed. She's also done a wonderful job doing corrective trims on my cw gelding I got last fall. He went from barely moving around the pasture to galloping with the herd. Mind you theres still work to be done but he's improved a lot.
    She's always on time if not early, always in a good mood and treats my horses wonderful. I almost switched to a different trimmer last year and Im so thankful I didnt

    When our farrier comes out to do my husbands Belgian I like to "treat" him with an ice cold fruit tea. He also likes those icy-hot back patches!

    ^ Well, I've never gotten that friendly with my farrier

    But I love mine because he shows up on time, actually confirms the night before and he is patient w/all my horses, he goes to farrier conventions to keep up to date and he always has interesting stories to tell.

    My friend looking after Sky loves our farrier. I do prefer him over the ones we've had so far.. but I wouldn't go as far to say I heart him..

    I withdraw my past statement. I love no farrier, nor prefer any farrier. Can I borrow yours, GH?

    Well, I loved my old farrier. Amazing talent, very knowledgeable, always on time or communicated any foreseeable delays, super considerate of her real client - the horse, and the patience of job. She pushed me into trimming my own - for which I am now grateful - although I wasn't initially. She moved. I just don't think it is possible for me to "replace" her.
