I had a barefoot trimmer out 2 weeks after the barn farrier trimmed her and then she did her every 4 weeks, last time and this we did 6 weeks. The trimmer fitted her for boots so she could be comfortable on the trail.

I assume you have stopped using him & if not, why not?? At the end of the day, they're our horses & if we don't take responsiblity, rather than just handing it over to any old 'expert', they it's on our heads when our horses suffer.

Yes. I'm hoping to have Alibi's feet done by Rachel's farrier.
Alibi doesn't belong to me, and I didn't know of any other farrier at the time. So it was up to th BO to pick the farrier.
