No.. I expect most people wouldn't. Ha ha If he were anyone else, I wouldn't either. He does travel to me about a third of the time now, but I guess my family has always hauled to him. Back in the day he did our horses and my grandpa did his show cattle, so they'd do it on the same day, at the same time.. Its easier to haul horses than cattle.. The habit has just sorta stuck now that I'm responsible for my farrier bills.
Standing around isn't really the norm when I haul to him.. Usually if I'm hauling to him, I'm the first appointment of the day. He usually isn't late that way.. You know.. Since I'm at his house.
ha ha He's also generally fresher, or not as sore.. So there isn't quite as much time between horses.. Although there's still a fair amount!
Good luck with your new farrier though! Hopefully she works out better for you.
