    I do, just because we have VERY little choice for farriers around here, and we happened to find a Great farrier this time! He's very patient, repremands the horse only when needed, and helps the horse's natural conformation.

    It does seem like a good idea, especially if your horse is being a complete butthead, or if they really bend over backwards to accomodate you (like emergency service, or if the weather is god awful). But no, I've never actually tipped a farrier. I'm sure most would appreciate it though!

    I actually do tip my farrier. Mostly because he does everything. He gets the horses, puts them back, and if they are completely horrible he still does his job. So yes I do tip the farrier.

    Nope.


    I really think I should, though... because my farrier always chooses a time to come out when he can stay for about half an hour after he finishes my horses... he helps me to evaluate my horses movements... he teaches me to do my own trimming... and he gives me training advice for my colt. Lol.

    I won't tip but depends on situation. My yearling that was hurt last fall in a trailer, we had been changing bandages everyday since oct of last fall on front leg and two weeks ago she just got the okay form the vet that we can leave it unwrapped Then my silly husband was cleaning it and pulled like a little blood booger and it hurt so now she really is not sure about you being on that side I have been working with her on it but just somedays are good and other days not so good. Well whe had one of those not so good days and she kinda gave him a hard time He had to work with her for about 20min so I felt like I should give him a little extra, He is aware of her injury and was very understanding but.. but I around here it is hard to find a good farrier and alot of farriers around here don't want to deal with problem children. So I made him take it. I felt better anyways.
