Does she get money from the "natural" farrier?
No she told me she let him slide because it was only 3 women who use him. But 6 of us are so far wanting to use the new farrier I found. Along with about 3 others who are tired of the barn farrier. They are not out at the barn often but saw us using him the other night and claimed they had also been running into problems with their horses' feet
She is mad at me for bringing this new farrier in, and is basically blaming me for possibly causing her to lose her discount with horrible barn farrier. I wish she would wake up and realize that if so many are voicing their displeasure and actively seeking a change than something is seriously wrong. She claims to be a business horse person and says that's what this is all about. I feel like a true horse person would be investigating why the barn farrier is suddenly losing a lot of clients.
I guess I will just wait to see where the hammer falls. Drifter is staying with the new farrier, that's a no brainer. Whether he is staying on this boarding facility property or not... only time will tell.
