4 let downs by my farrier at the last minute, including my boy having a foot abscess, and he told me to get the vet to come and take the shoe off, aye right ...and I picked up a rasp and learned to trim myself....and that was 7 years ago, never looked back. I wouldn't have a farrier near my boys.
Very sensible, I am considering going this route myself. I just need to find enough time to learn how to do it properly: working, studying for a degree, a house renovation and three horses don't leave much spare time (or inclination) to learn ANOTHER new trick
I would take Mandeigh's suggestion with caution - she is being flippant about it but it is a long hard road she has chosen and not for the feint hearted.
Ahem...one bad farrier.....try living up here I often wondered if evasion tactics were taught as part of their course......certainly customer care skills arn't. :laugh
