So I had the farrier out tonight to trim the horses. My husband is out of town and he normally does their feet. First off the farrier knows my horses and I told him which horses needed to be done. The first thing he did that pissed me off is he "trimmed" Que's feet. They were just done a little over two weeks ago!!! I was pissed! And then after trimming all my horses, AFTER, he tells me that he has jacked up his prices by $10 a trim! Are you kidding me! I mean I would have had them done anyways but he should have told me BEFORE he trimmed them. I mean what if I didn't have the extra money, or whatever, it should be my choice if I want to pay him the extra money per horse!!! I can't believe he charge me $30 to "trim" Que's feet! What a piss of! I'm so mad right now!!! And the worst part is, I had to pay with out arguing because it's very hard to find a farrier that will come out for anythig less than 10 horses.
Well at least you guys have one to complain about. I just got dumped again. I only have one horse, with great feet, trim only and I can't keep a farrier at all. As soon as they get more clients, I'm dumped. My mare is good, my schedule is flexible, I never turn down when they want to come out.
So I'm hunting another one.........
I wish your horse would have kicked him in the butt! Lol. That's so irritating!! I would have only paid for the horses you requested and ONLY the price originally stated.. that's just me though!! I'm a fighter when it comes to those things!!
I get charged anything from $35-$45 a trim...depending on how he is feeling for the day. I don't complain because he does a good job and it is hard to get a good farrier that comes when he says he will.
