Talking Looking for vet info for rural Spokane area

Hello all! I am not sure where this thread should go, as none seem to quite match it.... So if anyone knows, feel free to tell me where to move it! :)
But on to my question...
We will be moving to western Spokane county- rural, about 20 miles from the city. We will be bringing my horse with us, and I like to try to be prepared for the animals in advance. Does anyone have any recommendations for vets and farriers for the area? We do not currently have a trailer, so trailering her to them is a bit of a no go at the moment, though we plan to get one, but I still would rather a house call vet and farrier. She also has nice hard feet with no shoes, so someone who is good with that would be great! And can I can I throw in there that the smaller 4 legged animals will need a vet too?! But they fit in the car and carriers, so no issues there!
Thanks in advance! :)

My mom used a really nice equine vet on the southern side of Spokane while she lived on the south hill (part of Spokane). She moved to the north end of Spokane and has been using an equine vet up there. It really depends on what part of the Spokane area you will be. There are a lot of vets for smaller animals and several very good equine specialized vets with full equine hospital facilities.

The farrier that I like the best in the Spokane area has been cutting back on her number of clients over the last ten years, and doesn't take new ones. She recently cut back on having my mom a client (long distance to travel for a couple of horses) but gave her a list of farriers that she would personally recommend. If you want that information, I could get it to you, but not until my mom returns from her trip so she can look up the names and numbers

More information would be perfect, Sunny! Thanks! We will be living on the west side- about 20 miles out of where the base is located. And roughly the same if we were to drive up through Nine Mile Falls. I am still learning how everything ties in up there, lol, and we haven't even moved yet, so that doesn't help it much! I did worry that the travel for the vets and farriers might be an issue. :( When I was there, I did see other horses, so I am sure there are travelling vets and farriers... guess I will just go knock on their doors and ask who they use! And I plan to go ask who a barn in Nine Mile Falls uses also. Anyhoo, thanks for the offer, I definitely look forward to any information your mother has to share! :)
