What do u pay 4....A trim,shoes?

Just wondering what everyone pays for trims and shoes in their areas? I'm in Oregon and I pay $25 for a trim and when and if I shoe it will be $80, at this time anyway. My best friend lives in Las Vegas and she pays $45 per trim and $100 for shoes!!

I live in Ohio and I pay $35 for a trim, I think shoes are around $100 but not completely sure -- Sandie's always been barefoot.

I trim myself, but with the gas prices last year, I believe trims went up from $25 to $35 around here.

I pay $30 but alot of people around me pay $20 they just aren't as good ferriers.
Shoes from my guy are $60 for fronts and $70 for all four.
I would pay $80 for all four with new sliders (reining shoes).

I pay $40 for a trim and $80 for front shoes. That includes my draftie which is really good. My previous farrier charged me $50 to trim him but my new farrier doesn't charge me more :)

Im in Maryland. We pay $160 for 4 shoes. My horse has aluminum wedged shoes on his front feet so that makes it a little more expensive.
