Keep in mind, she has big feet, so I guess they charge more
Most of the farriers I know charge more for the draft breeds because of their size. It is much more difficult and stressful (physically) for them to handle all that weight.

It's a job I wouldn't want for anything. Truthfully I don't think they get paid enough for what they have to know and what they go through.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Wow, I can't believe what you guys are paying!
That's insanely inexpensive.

The barn down the road I used to ride at was $210 for four shoes and a trim (thankfully I didn't have my horse yet!).

I currently pay $145 for four shoes and a trim but my farrier said that when my guy is able to go barefoot, it will only be about $75.

And I thought I was paying nothing!
