Clipping

What is a decent price to get a farrier to clip a horses hooves?
Just wondering how much you pay. We definitely need to get Midnight's
Hooves done, one is starting to split and I'm going to have to lay off riding
Her until the job is done.

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

I pay $45 (which includes a gas fee)... while money is a concern you also need to look at the quality in which the farrier does the job.

Yes it should have already been done, I call her my horse but she
Really doesn't belong to me, but if my grandpa isn't going to have it
Done soon like he says I guess I will have to pay for it.

Thanks for the info.

For Victor it's $35, and Norman is $50. It should be around $35 for a normal sized horse.
