Farrier needed....... S/E Texas

Any of you Texans know of a good farrier in the Conroe area?

I'm new here so I don't know what is proper, as far as posting a reply to my question.
If it would be better, you can e-mail me at DGW1949@hughes.net but don't get your feelings hurt if it takes me a while to answer. My computer time is rather limited.

Thanks in advance.

Check out http://www.americanfarriers.org/ They have a pretty good list of farriers by state. You could also check at your local tack/feed store, either ask or see if they have a bulletin board. If all else fails look around to see if anyone in your area has horses, knock on their door and ask them.

Thanks for the reply.

I looked over the link that you posted but they didn't show anyone within 4 Counties of me.
I've already asked at the feed store.
All my neighbors has cows.

The search continues. :roll: .

I've had problems with my e-mail server and currently, it's not working.
Since I posted my original message, I did find a guy who is local to me. He checks/trims my two every couple of weeks. But he is perty-young and I wouldn't mind having someone else look at them, just to get a second opnion.

I'm in Montgomery County....about 12 miles East of Conroe.

Thanks for wanting to help.

I checked http://www.americanfarriers.org just for interest. Neither farrier, which was recommended to me by local people (including mine) are not on list. :)

I talked with Casey last Saturday night and again this morning.
Seems like a nice guy....and very knowlagable.
He's located over in Liberty County but has scheduled to come out to my place in 2 weeks.

I'll let you know how things go.

Thanks!
