Yes, for sure!! Since I now have 9 horses on the property, and the only decent barefoot trimmer I had found at all (who had stopped being able to come out during winter months because she drove from across the state) charged me $50 per a horse per trim....50x9=$450 a month (although of course, I wouldn't be paying for the 3 of them that don't belong to me, if that were the case!) it's way more than financially making sense to do it myself!
I also always thought it was kind of unfair that she charged me the same $50 for my perfectly well mannered, holds-her-feet-up-for-you little 11 hand welsh mare as she did for my big, sometimes unruly, draft crosses!
