    Holiday farrier questions...

    I've read different places (magazines and such) that people give gifts to their farriers at the holidays and I'm wondering if I would be remiss to not give my farrier some sort of gift...

    I was thinking something along the lines of asking her if she likes cookies (on Monday since she's coming out then) and baking her some the next time she comes out (probably early January...I think...we appear to be doing an every 6 weeks thing).
    Monday would be the third time she's trimmed Lacey, maybe she hasn't been doing it long enough to deserve cookies? She's super awesome, always on time and calls way before if she's going to late and Lacey adores her so in that respect she deserves cookies... I don't even know.

    Do you give gifts to your farrier? Should I? I'm confuzzled.

    Thought about this too, my farrier puts up with alot of crap from my mare. I was sure he was going to just not come back after she knocked him over several times. I was thinking gift certificates.

    Cookies are a great idea. They say, "I hope you have a nice holiday" without costing too much. I give the boy at the market who helps load my groceries a small plate of cookies. I used to give my farrier a couple of pints of apple butter cause he was so good about calling and showing up on time. I guess what I am saying is go for it. She will appreciate it I know.
