First farrier appt

I finally got an appointment with a farrier for Jack!!! He's coming Thursday morning! Now I'm just worried that Jack will be an idiot and hurt one or all of us. This guy told me that he is very use to working on rescues and young horses, but would still love it if I knew he would just stand like an old pro. LOL, wish us luck

Just don't get nervous on day of appointment. Behave like always (or he can feed up from you).

If you can exercise your horse a little before the farrier gets there, that way he won't be fresh or too fidgety. And as Kitten_Val said, treat it as any other day, he'll read into your emotions so keep calm and assertive.

Good luck

Jack had his farrier appointment today and it went AWSOME!!!!! He was very well behaved! Only tried to move a few times and I just put pressure on his halter and told him easy and he calmed right down. I absoultly loved the farrier and the way he handeled Jack. He showed exactly on time, explained every thing he did, gave me some tips on his hoof care and asked if I would like to set my next appointment. Yeah for us!!

Sounds like this farrier is a keeper.
