I wish you were a little closer. We have a great farrier in our area. Good luck.

This is the trimmer I just called. He's going to call me back ina few to get my information. I'll post updates when he calls back and pictures when he comes out...seems like a REALLY professional guy. I'm just wondering what his prices are. I don't care at this point, I'll pay whatever for my boy to be happy and healthy..but what is the average trim cost? I've been paying $60 for my farrier..to do a crummy job..he charges $35 for barefoot trims but I've never been able to convince him to take Gunnars shoes off.. If I'm lucky this new guy will charge around $60 a trim...I don't know though with his spiffy website..

I have a list from the vet of farriers but I don't see a single one of them online..I don't like that. This guy seem's really professional. I'm hopeful! I'm hoping he can be out as early as next Monday or Tuesday..

Oops! Sorry about that. For some reason I thought she was in Missouri.
I hope that guy works out, from everything he says about himself he knows his stuff.

Talked to my new barefoot trimmer :)
I'm in love. He's so professional. $25 barn call, $30 trim.
$10-15 barn call after the first visit because he will put me in rotation with his other clients. I'll take before and after pictures
He's coming out Thursday the 26th at 5:30

That's wonderful news. I hope he can get your guy straightened out.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I'm so very hopeful! I'll try to get some pictures of his feet as they look now. Hopefully either tomorrow or Friday but for sure by his appointment Thursday.
