I completely agree with this.

I wish I had a good natural hoof care specialist around where I live.

Oh my God, my gelding is the same way. He likes to try to die anytime he has half a chance. Feet are the same way. He will always have to have shoes on his front feet.

The going rate here is $42 for a trim, $120 for a reset of 4. New shoes and pads , summer $220 and winter $300+.
I've done very well shoing part time over the last 23 years

Where I live its 25-35 for a trim depending on experience of the farrier, 65-75 for shoes all around, 45-55 for front shoes. This isn't for anything fancy just steel shoes.

I prefer to keep them barefoot but appaloosas are known to have hard feet which the old man does good hard feed they stay in great shape regardless he hasnt had shoes in 9 years rebel on the other hand had very bad feet between them being white and alot TB in him he just doesnt stand a chance but I just keep him well trimmed and filed so they don't get horrible my paint has to have shoes being that he's navicular on the front anyways so he gets shoes just depends on the horse really but I like them barefoot

I pay $100 for a trim for my draft but that includes a nice size tip.
