Anyone have any suggestions for farriers near Grand Rapids, Michigan? I need one that will go to a two horse property. Thanks!

I can recommend my guy, John Lake. He is AWESOME. Comes to my 3-horse property. Always on time, if he has to cancel (rare) he calls first, he works with my schedule, every sunday before my appointment he calls to confirm he's planning on me.
He is AFA certified, and I found him through their website. Rates are reasonable. My horses' feet have been happy with him (They improved from where they were with my previous person) for almost 3 years now. My horses are all barefoot during the winter and my competing horse gets shoes during the show season; I have been very happy with his shoeing work too. He is quick at it but thorough--his craftsmanship is wonderful.
Here is the AFA page with his contact info--if that phone number doesn't work, PM me for his cell number and e-mail address: http://afaworks.com/FindAFarrier/Details.aspx?ContactID=12888
