I wasn't sure which section to put this in and I know this is a dumb question but I've never dealt with the farrier myself before. For us, the farrier comes out, does his thing and we leave a check so I am not there to see what happens or ask questions. I'd like to be there but he just shows up a certain day whenever he gets there and I generally don't have all day to hang around the barn waiting.
Lucky has shoes in the front. Does the farrier replace the shoes every time he trims? Or do they trim around them unless they need replacing? I can't believe I don't know this. I feel seriously ignorant. I'm sorry for having to ask this. Thanks though :)
