    Good is relative. What do you consider to be good?

    Some do. Some don't. There's no real blanket statement that you can make. Are you talking $30k a year or 50 or 100?

    If you're not well connected, talented and skilled you're at a disadvantage for the high end jobs. If you apply yourself you can make a great living as a farrier or trainer but there's also plenty of both who end up with a second job to pay the bills.

    Hard work and skill are the big factors. So yes, there's potential out there. Whether or not you would reach it is mostly up to you.

    I asked my farrier what he made last year and he brought in just over $105,000. He has to take expenses out of that, truck, gas, supplies, taxes, insurance. If expenses are half it is still certainly a good living.
    He doesn't do a crazy amount of horses a day either. Some days he does but not most. I think around 5 a day.

    Farriers do make decent $$s and are always busy, but I'll tell you (since I trim our horses) that trimming on a 95 day with 95% humidity sucks the life right out of this old man, and I wouldn't do it for the going rate around here of $30.
