Hemms, don't judge farriers by the goofball you had. My farrier doesn't charge for lost shoes between resets and he usually out the next day to replace it. He told me if someone has an appointment first thing in the morning, he might be late doing a replacement. I don't worry about appointments, he schedules my horses' himself, he doesn't need me there, the horses wait at gate for their turn with him, I just pay him a bunch of money for the whole year, he tells me when I owe him more or if I have a credit, this is the kind of farrier all of us should have. In the 20+ years of using this man, no horse of mine has ever had even a rock bruise, let alone an abcess, thrush, or anything nasty like that. My horses are used almost daily for trailriding, showing, lessons, etc.
