Thursday was shoeing day.
My farrier always calls or texts to remind me and to check to see if our appointment time still works for me (seriously!). He comes on time (no, I am not exaggerating). He treats my horse sweetly (He's been known to share his granola bar with Speedy!). He always sends a text, or a leaves a voicemail, telling me how great my horse was for his "pedicure" (love technology). Today the farrier even sent a picture of Speedy's new feet with his text!
The photo above is the day before shoes. Speedy is at just under six weeks. These are his hind feet. Look how thin the shoe is!
Are you convinced? No? I didn't think so! Farrier's are worth their weight in gold and if you've found a good one, you're probably willing to do anything to keep him! I know that I adore mine!
