Okay, something else I should say...they're not our horses. We are the "riders" of Willie and Sam. We were going to be there for the farrier visit, just to help hold them, but the real owner resceduled the appointment to an earlier time, when we couldn't be there, and we didn't know that until afterwards. If we were there, I would have said something. What he did, I think, was, instead of coming out every week to do little trims, he just did all of it then. He seems to be a good farrier, but then, the owners don't seem to know what to look for in a farrier. They just have a whole ton of animals (donkeys,3, horses,10, birds,3?5?, dogs,6?, llamas,7, goats2?, and cars,10) and no real horse sense. I will try to get pics of his bad foot next time we go out.....thankfully, we only live five minutes away. The lady who comes and feeds the horses during the week, (oh, by the way she's a registered racehorse trainer....she told us that fifteen times within the first week we met :roll: ) She's a real kick in the pants. She never seemed to think anything was wrong.
I will try to get pics soon!
Any other advice?
