I feel the same way about my farrier. The point of that was that if your friends have a farrier and like him and respect him, they wouldn't think of switching just because he's your boyfriend.
I would, however, introduce him to your friends because he's your boyfriend and they're your friends. That's a good enough reason to me. Maybe they'll eventually decide to switch to him... Who knows.

I should be clear that I in no way expect my friends to switch to him. I've only told a couple friends with horses about him because they were complaining about their own farrier. I will pass the word on that he's great when I can, but no one is expected or asked to switch. He was my farrier before we started dating and I told people about him then.
I just simply was curious if people thought it would be awkward in case he and my friends didnt get along but they became his clients. Its between he and anyone if they work together, not me. Posted via Mobile Device
