    Ahearn: You info did help. However ~ I'm still trying to find more info on the nutritional end of things. I'm trying to switch my girl to a healthier feed. However, my natural trimmer is really helping me out.

    He is a good guy & I'm sorry but I'm not passing him up.

    Country: Dan also teaches. He overheard me sayin that my BF wanted to learn how to trim & he said to me " Tell him to give me a call" I'll teach & show him. We are always looking for more people to get the word out & do it." It was nice b/c he obviously (in my opinion) is more worried about horses then making money for himself. B/c most farriers/trimmers are not always so willing to "train" unless the person is from somewhere different then they are.

    I'm glad to hear that every one has good opinions on them. I'm so thankful I found him. My horses have always been barefoot but not the "right" BAREFOOT!

    UpDATE: Legend's feet are looking as good as they can so far & our "plan" is working so far. I am riding her & using some of his training tips and they are working!

    Anyone know of any good natural farriers is southern ohio. The guy I am using now just does a basic barefoot trim and so does everyone else I have found here locally. I have been searching for one myself and have had no luck in finding a natural farrier.

    Nautral Trimmers

    I to, am looking for a good barefoot trimmer also. Anyone in the Northern Alabama or Southern (central) Tennessee area??

    I would love to learn too, but my back won't allow me to do it. I'm trying to figure out a way that I could do my own, maybe be able to sit down somehow.........

    The farriers that friends use are terrible. Horses hooves are too tall and long, shoes come off all the time. I keep my mares barefoot, the farriers that I've met don't like this at all. They are your typical know-it-alls and will only trim and shoe the horses. They handle them very roughly and the horses don't like them at all.

    Please help!

    Thanks!

    You can also try the Easy Care Inc (makers of easy boots) site for a list of trimmers. The trimmers just submit their name, so be sure to interview and check references. It's a public list, like a classified sort of.

    Hi!
    We are doing quite well, thanks! She's 6 weeks old today, and I'm easing back into work, and she is getting to go to work with me. Before long she'll be telling ME how to do my job.
    She certainly keeps me on the go,with eating and pooping, lots of laundry, and lots of smiles. They grow soo fast!
