She's gorgeous! I see lots of potential in her. =)

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Hey, I noticed you're in michigan as well. What farrier do you use? If you haven't settled on a good one yet, I recommend Larry Sicard. I'm almost positive he travels to that side of the state. :) Its to bad I'm leaving Michigan in 6 days, Or I would happily adopt her as a project horse! She's beautiful!

Gypsy gold does not chink and glitter. It gleams in the sun and neighs in the dark.

Thanks! I definitely haven't settled on one yet. Our farrier we have been using made our horses lame so definitely no more of him. We thought our horses had self trimmed since we ride so much on dirt roads, but we had to have our filly done so we called him out. He said that both of our horses were a little long too and that he'd just take a little off. Well he took so much off that they can't ride in anything but thick grass now or they limp and act all 'ouchy.' I'm definitely not happy with that! Do you have Larry's contact information and do you know how much he charges? Thanks so much!!

I don't have his info right off hand, I'll make a couple calls to see if I can find it for you. Last time I used Larry he charged me $35 for a full trim and front shoes on my geldind. He had some amazing prices, and great work.


Someone I wouldn't personally use is Nelson Meiske. He's not a bad farrier, but he tends to do a cookie cutter trim on every horse. Its always the same, no matter what their needs are.

The guy I use now is Frank who owns Sanilac Farrier Service. I'm not sure on his last name, but I haven't been too impressed with his work, my horses are still limping around 2 weeks later :(
