*sobs*
I have a farrier coming in 4 hours to do Alahna's feet..I hate it! *pulls hair out*

The fact that he feet need done like..two weeks ago before I bought her killed me..BUT, the fact that by flipping my car I'm much too sore/injured to deal with a fiesty OTTB that cow kicks jusy yet..

I know nothing of this farrier aside from his name, age, price, and that he has done her before..so hopefully he knows about the cow kicking and understands I can't fix it while I'm down there yet. My shoulders just don't have the strength to hold onto a kicking hoof right now..

I'm so far beyond bummed ;; I'm terrified he's going to do a hack job on her poor (already poor lol) hooves!

I guess I should at least look at all the farriers in the area and check out their work in case I have another shoulder/back/neck injury, eh? :(

Anywho...

Aww - gives brownies.- Hover over him like a hawk and make sure he is not sawing chunks of his hoof off! You can always step in and say something if you don't like what he is doing to Alahna's hooves. Who knows, might be interesting to watch the farrier do your horses hooves!

*SIGH* no he is not cute, but he is strong, kind and patient, works with a horse rather than against it, and is worth his weight in gold. I'll take that over cute:wink:

THIS would be a bonus

See Golden..I got all that (my first impression anyway, haha) and the cute. (;

I may just so happen to be inclined to ask for shirtless next summer when I know him better xD

I hope none of you ladies is married, b/c I AM TELLING!!!:D

Sorry you are not 100%, yet.

Glad the farrier worked out for you. I wish I could find one I really liked (I don't pay attention to how they look, I am married):wink:. The little moose of a filly I have is actually getting pretty good about me doing her feet (relative to her initial zero training), but I guess it wouldn't bother me if someone else did them. I know it is wrong to play favorites and I feel a bit guilty about it, but I don't mind fussing w my "princess's" feet, but when it comes to the little haffie I just want to "get it over with".

Okay, So I had a long talk with my horse and she said that although the last farrier did so great on her feet and they feel so much better.....She said it is okay if I want to go use the stud muffin farrier that Golden has!!! But she said I can only have him do my feet, not hers. Hmmmm.Not going to work. I have gross feet.

Isuel...You aren't doing it right!!! You have to be closely observing his awe inspiring farrier work ways and accidently spill your drink on him (nothing sweet cause there is no bigger turn off than fly infested hotties) anyway, I am sure you can figure out the rest. Never Never ask him to take his shirt off. You have to trick him into it kind of like trailering a horse.

Off topic...Had a super cute urgent care doctor once. Looked like he should have been on a tv show.. really really cute. The kind of cute that you can't hardly speak around. Anyway, had an injured knee from a large dog running into it the wrong way. So, there I am in my paper shorts, my unshaved scarred legs with leather purple knee on the good leg and a mass of something supposed to be flesh on the other. I am laying down with this doctor totally moving my leg all over in my paper shorts. I had just got off work and could smell myself and the dog feces and the cat urine from an intact tom there, and then I notice it.....Not only do my socks not match but theyr are stray socks from my boyfriend that have no elastic in them, so one is half way up and the other is .....well you get the idea. And my face was burning from the deep flush hue of my embarrasment. That exam felt like it lasted forever.

OK carry on, off to see the horse.
