    I am really not sure why. He said he thought they looked real good, even though I know better. I have never met any trimmer IRL who expressed any concern about them, even though I understand the significance. One of the reasons I started learning myself, because there always seemed to be a shortfall somewhere, in every trim.

    If she´s tender foot on hard ground best stay on the grass.
    If you plan on useing her off soft ground get her shod or booted.

    Your shoer must love his old customers flying all over the county to do trims.....how´s he manage to get his Tools through Control? Last time I Went through those buggers confiscated my safty razor!

    ^He mustn't have had them in handluggage... apparently even a bottle of drink, deodorant or any other liquid is even considered a threat now - no idea how they work that one out, but I was peeved to lose my deodorant last time... what was I going to do with it - hold up the plane with the threat of not using any??

    Lolol! Yeah, death by deodorant!

    You know, I have no idea about his tools? He said he doesn't have many non-barefoot horses anymore so maybe he keeps a basic set on location?

    That is possible as all he needs is a knife and rasp.
    What I wonder is "does it pay being an interstate trimmer"?
    Have a friend who flys down to Switzerland to shoe an old customers horse who had moved down there, and she pay´s for Everything, flight, shoeing, room and board, must be one expencive shoe job.....................

    I am sure he would not do it if he wasn't being compensated. And it is quite possible that once he builds a client base here in Michigan he will back off on the travel. But he said it is, like it is here, very hard to find quality barefoot trimmers in those areas.

    Aha, if there is a big demand for a good shoer/trimmer seems like he´d be booked solid.
    When I move out of my old shoeing grounds I arrainged for some of the other shoer s to take over my customers so they wouldn´t be without.
    All my customers were within a 50 mile radies as over that it was too much travel time + gas, wear and tear on the car and just too much expence.

    They can be flown in the checked baggage, not the carry on bags. I have done it many times but you have to hope some baggage handler does not steal them, or lose your bags.

    Ah, but the airline is responsible for lost baggage is it not?? Then, as the tools that were stolen were obviously a complete set of top of the range...
