Question Anyone with a shod horse...??

How much does it generally cost you to have your horse re-shod?

It just cost me the amount of the shoe's.. But that's because my brother is a Farrier. :) I'll check and see how much my shoe's are...

We used to have a Thoroughbred gelding, the reason he had shoes was because he foundered and he always had to wear them....It costed somewhere between $40 and $60...they would always fall off and sometimes the farrier would make a trip up to put them on for free and sometimes he charged a little bit..the price also includes the trimming and he also had to have pads, so it really depends on what your farrier charges and if he/she is nice lol

Your horse can only be as brave as you are

60 pound for all 4 shoes and 2.50 for stud holes?

A good horse can never be a bad colour...

Fortunately, either my dad or my brother shoe all of my horses but for anyone else, they charge about $75. One of my friends down here is a farrier and has gone to the school and has his own forge and everything, he charges $90.

We paid $90 last time but we got 4 new shoes although it would have cost more if it had been done at home, we took the horse into town for it.

$90.00 for 2 shoes on the front. Nothing special. It sucks.

The horses in the barn shod all around and tapped in the back are $250.00!!!!

Between $80-$100 CAD for the trim and 4 new shoes (hot shoeing). Not sure about cold shoeing, but I assume less, as there isn't the same work involved.

In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. Eleven-hundred pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.
