    To me gender wouldn't be the issue. Doing it right is. As long as you are physically able to do all that a client needs done, then give it a try. One thing that seems to be equal among all farriers...

    All my riding horses since 1976 have started out as babies and I have enjoyed each and every one thoroughly! If you have experience training your own horses ( with success) I don't see why not.

    This^^^ is what I was thinking. If you want to find out what is really going on, go in person and find out. Can you prove ownership of this horse if needed?
