I Need a New Farrier

So after careful observation of horse's hooves this past weekend after a recent trimming (Barn Owner handled holding the horses as I could not make it out that day) I have noticed that he has underslung the heels quite a bit. I haven't been out the last two trimmings to check on them due to schedule and weather and I wish I had. Does anyone know of a GREAT GREAT farrier in the Houston Area? I've had this guy for years and he seems to be slacking off.

Not sure if you can tell from this photo but it is the only full body photo I took this weekend. The sandy ground makes it difficult to tell.

Yes Houston, TX. Santa Fe? That seems like quite a distance from me. I'm on the Northern Side of Houston. Guess I should have been more specific. My Horses are in The Woodlands.

Yeah that might be a little too far lol. I live in Pasadena and he has no problem traveling here. You could call him, see if he goes to The Woodlands, or if knows any reputable farriers in that area. Or try calling your vet and see who they recommend.

Hi. I think finding a farrier is a cross between a pediatrition and a hairdresser. I hate it. However, my current farrier corrected my horse's underrun heels in 2 visits. If you see any horses around, since you can spot underun heels, see if you can find any.

Ugh, I'm having a horrid time with farriers right now as well. I live in the Katy area, about 40 minutes from you. How far away are you from Humble? If you're willing to trailer (or pay quite a bit more money for her to come out) Darolyn Butler of Barefootin' Around at Cypress Trails it great. I'm actually trying to arrange for her to do some work on our foster filly who has a great big mess of a problem with her feet xD
