My farrier doesn't charge for pulling shoes and if there is not enough growth for a trim he just rasps them smooth and sends you on your way. I'm lucky as well because if I have a horse with a small flare or crack pre trim he will just stop in and rasp it quickly.
Have I ever mentioned how much I like my farrier!! Only farrier that has been able to maintain my horse with or without shoes and he is sounder than he ever has been with the least amount of muss and fuss.
I am however a regular client with a fully shod horse, and appointments every 5 weeks so I don't know if it would be different for a new client...

I have NEVER been charged to have shoes pulled. I have used many different farriers and none have charged. For a trim in my area its only $25 with FREE shoe pulling.

I tried a barefoot trimmer for a very short period of time, and she charged me extra to pull the shoes. I actually thought that it was going to kill her too, she had to put in massive effort to pull them I nearly offered to do it for her.

This horse was trimmed 2-3 weeks ago. Any opinions? Sorry so dirty. I can take a better one tomorrow when I can wash some of the dirt out..
