I used to when I used this one guy, he was so awesome, if I had an extra buck or two I would throw it in, but usually ppl don't.

If he does a special job or something extra, then I usually tip. ;) Otherwise, nope.

A christmas card would be nice. I don't think it would be frowned upon, or unappreciated.

My fiance I tipped our farrier when he came to do Gem's feet. He was very patient and was very gentle, and was accepting of Gem's few freak outs. So he got a nice generous $20 tip.
