Gah! I share your pain!
Our first farrier was Ok, usually on time and whatnot, but he was impossible to get ahold of. My dad got this other guy who shows up 4 hours late, claiming his "dog ran away this morning" -.- Then, 4 days later, my horse threw one shoe and we called him back. He said he would come on Thursday (so she'd be shoeless for 2 days-no biggy). Well, Thursday he was a no show. Friday he was a no show. My dad called him back Friday night asking where he was (and saying that if you're not going to come at least call and let us know) and he said he might be able to make it over Saturday. So, naturally, that means he's not coming. He has yet to return, and my dad finally just pulled the other shoe.
It's really annoying. It's especially annoying because no matter how many times a farrier stands you up, you know he's always going to have business. Well not with us, sir!
