Tip your farrier?

Are you supposed to tip your farrier?

I don't think anyone does it where I live, but maybe they just don't know better

I remember EXACTLY same topic from last year. Don't remember what section it was in though.

And to answer no, I don't, and don't know anyone in area who does. However I always get a big box of european chocolate as "Thank You" for X-mas to show him my appreciation with his work.

I like my farrier a lot. His price is 84 so I tip him and give him 90 lol. You don't have too but I want to help him out in some way. Especially because of gas.

I do not tip my farrier.

I do provide him with prepared horses, a comfortable place to work (out of the elements, not heated or anything), cold/hot drinks and cookies or the like.

I buy him a gift every year at Christmas (usually a gift card to a store I know he likes).

Not usualy but I did with my new guy. He comes from an hour away, and he spent so much extra time on my girl fixing her toes.

Sometimes I tip. Depends on the situation. My horse was being a putz the other day and the poor guy ended up hammering his own knee. I tipped him that day. But my farrier will also rush out to fix an issue at the drop of a hat....
