Hi! I recently relocated to Charlotte NC with my 2 thoroughbreds. They are currently boarded in Monroe, NC. I'm looking for farrier and vet recommendations in the area.

For farriers, I'm looking for someone with experience shoeing competition horses (particularly event horses), experience with thoroughbred feet, and someone that is available to work on weekends if needed (my current farrier in NC is only available M-F, even in the event of an emergency, and that just isn't going to work for me). They also need to be able to come to the farm versus me trailering to them.

For vets, I'm interested in finding out who the good lameness specialists are. The barn I am at works with a general practitioner for shots and such. I just want to get up to speed on the good specialists in case I am in need of one in the future.

Thanks in advance for the help!

I recommend Palmetto Equine (Dr. Sam Tetterton, et al) in Camden, SC as a lameness vet--he's very good and fairly priced. From Monroe, it's only 45min to his practice, and several of his associates come to farms in Charlotte/Waxhaw/Monroe every week if you can't trailer down.

PM me if you'd like his number or a farrier recommendation.
