    I must say that I am surprised to hear that people tip them on a regular occasion!

    Eh - my dad is a retired farrier and he was never tipped. Sometimes food around Christmas or free drinks, but nothing I would ever consider a tip. So needless to say, if somebody other than my dad shoes my horses, I don't tip them either.

    I do and always have, each visit. Farriers are like Gods. Great ones are hard to find. Tipping is my way of telling my farrier his work is appreciated.

    I normally don't but I will if he comes out for a special reason such as a problem, a lost shoe or a only one of my horses, I will.
