Unless the horse has hoof problems he likely doesnt need trimming that often. Most are done every 6 to 9 weeks. A lot of it depends on the type of ground the horse is on.

Seems like I'm the lucky one. We pay a grand total of $10 per trim from our Amish blacksmith. $15 for front shoes, $18 for full sets. Excel has a special farrier that puts on full shoes plus pads for $70.

I'd say you're lucky! Hang on to him!

For sure! The only downside is that we have to go get him, bring him here, bring him home, and come back, which is about 3 hours in the car every 7 weeks.

Our BO generally does our trimming but with his back getting worse, I finally broke down and called a farrier out. $1 per mile that he had to travel plus $35 for Sour, and $30 for Clyd. The only reason Sour's was more was because she hadn't been trimmed in nine weeks, as I was really hoping the BO would get feeling better, so she neded a bit more work.

All in all I think it balanced out at about $40 per mini.

It all depends on the horse and how much work it is in. Mine HAD to have his trimmed no later than every 4 weeks. Now it's no later than 5-5.5) weeks. 6 weeks is too long since I only ride him 3 days a week. I'm hoping that when the mud goes away, it can be more like 6-6.5 weeks between trims.

The one (luckily) farrier I found that does trims all four for me(really good job) charges 85 for a trim.this is around metro georgia.
Other people have asked 20 (bad job) 120 (SO expensive for an okay job) and 105 but he wouldn't come unless there was more than 1 horse in need of a trim

My farrier charges $30. If he's called out on a day that he wont be in the area he charges $10 but I can't remember the last time I had to pay a barn call and he's always been able to swing by within a few days of calling if it's not the already scheduled appointment

To trim my horses every 6 weeks (summer) and 8 weeks (winter) it costs about $35/trim, which is what my first farrier charged me in 1985. (Poor farriers, who put up with bad foot behavior and can't keep up with the cost of living.)
