You need to get a different farrier. Shoeing this horse is just an additional expense and isn't necessary despite what this guy says. He will want to reset the shoes every 6 weeks, and they should be. If you purchase a good rasp you can touch up your horses feet on a weekly basis. Go to youtube and google Happy Hoof. This gal has a number of trimming videos. One of them will show you what you can do yourself. This way, the more you handle your horse's hooves the better he will get about standing to have them trimmed.
