Today, my Kate is getting shoes for the first time. I am a new horse owner and I desperately want to give my sweet girl the best. The Farrier came last month to trim her (20$) and she did really well. He asked me to soak her feet before he comes to shoe (he said Aug 5 or 6th)...I feel I have done that. Hopefully he will come today or tomorrow. What do I look for as a warning sign that he will not benefit her?
Please share both good and bad experiences you have had with your farriers..... and how often will he need to come and take care of her feet after her first shoeing?
