If a horse is having some hoof issues? I ended up spending $150 to shoe my gelding who is having some pretty bad issues with his hooves. That seems outrageous to me, especially since he only put shoes on his 2 front hooves. My last farrier wasnt doing a good job and probably played a part in messing up my horses hooves, so I was willing to pay it to get someone with a different perspective to start taking care of it. I just wanted to see if it was typical for farriers to jack up the price over the normal rate if a horse is having some issues.
