Prices are going up for shoes. Therefore, we are paying $75. Used to pay $40. Only this time, this week, our farrier only charged us $60 because of the late price rising notice. :-D

I board at my farrier's farm and she charges $20 for a nice trim. Though when we boarded about 30 minutes from her farm she cahrged a $10 farm call which my friend and I split. So we paid $25 each.

$30 for a trim from my farrier, but I will soon be trimming my own. I do not have shoes on the pony, so I don't know what she charges.

As someone else said- if you find a good farrier, treat them like a king. They are worth their weight in gold! My farrier would bend over backward for me.

We do our own trimming for the most part, but I have our farrier put pads and shoes on and off depending on who is going to show and who is training....
His price varies per horse depending on whats to be done.
Usually spending $85. Per hoof, that's including shoe,pad,putty and fitting.

It costs me $65 per trim (and that's cheap in my area)...$175 for plain toe clipped shoes...and I don't even want to know what padded or special shoes would cost....I'm sure it would be well in the $200 range.

I've only shoed my mare once since owning her. However, I do plan to shoe her again this coming spring. They're needed when I drive her on the roads. Her shoes weigh a ton!!! Luckily, I do have a good draft horse farrier who knows what he's doing.
