Thanks for the advice, tips, etc guys.
I am considering switching and am 95% sure that I am going to. But as SkyeDawn mentioned I don't want it to cause issues because my current farrier will still be doing the other horses at the barn and one of my friends boards at his place so I just don't want him badmouthing me to her(but she already know I want to stop using him, have wanted to for a bit now, so not too worried about that.
My only real issue right now that I need to really think about is for trimming I'm either going to have to trailer to my friends during trimmings or just not go with him(as much as I'd hate that.) I only have 3 being done and he may not come to the barn for less than 4 horses. So I'm a bit stuck but I'll figure it out.
I have an appt on saturday for my old farrier(going to be the last one, I've had it since the last trimming and I'd hate t be rude and cancel so soon.) I'll take pictures of his work and you guys can see what I'm talking about when he trims.
