Oy... I've had nothing but bad farriers the past few years. Up until 2 or 3 years ago my horses had the same farrier my entire life (he was a close family friend), but he quit farriering after his son passed away in an accident with a horse.
Since he quit, I seriously have not had the same farrier come out twice.
One guy I had come out completely cut the frog off of one of my horses. On top of that he also smacked that same horse on the shoulder with his rasp.
The last farrier I had come out was 3 hours late. He didn't apologize, didn't give a reason. I was furious.
