I recently moved barns so I also changed farriers.
I never even met my old farrier. He was the barn farrier (big barn), came once a week (Monday) and because of school and other things I was never able to be there and watch him to her feet. I did not like that, but of course he always did a good job so I wasn't too worried.
I now do self-care and Sunny had her feet done for the first time since we moved a week ago. I LOVE the new farrier.
He is an older gentleman but perfectly capable.
My girl was still pretty nervous from the move but he was so kind and patient with her.
She spooked once and he just held her, put his face on hers, and said, "Hey, it's alright." It was great to see and I am so glad I found him. He also did a great job on her feet!
