Well that's handy!!! Do you happen to know whereabouts in Kansas?
UPDATE! I messaged my husband's aunt who uses the same farrier as me, to ask if said farrier was still alive and trimming their horses....and she is! She said she responds faster if I text her. lol
So I did, and wow, like, 10 minutes later, A REPLY!!!!!! I don't know why that works better than a VOICEMAIL. But whatev! Works for me!
She's coming out tomorrow at 1. While I'm visiting my friend two hours away. Of course. I made SURE my mother-in-law knows to go ahead and schedule another appointment even though I'm not there......
I'm really glad she got back to me FINALLY. My farrier is really great, she's smart and good with the horses, and treats all my aunt-in-law's problem feet horses with excellent results, so I would've HATED to have to find someone else just cuz she sucks at organization :P
Farrier work is so hard! I'm amazed that anyone, much less a woman, really wants to do it for any length of time, I'm inclined to agree that we pamper them if they deserve it, even if they DO act a little diva at times.....;)
