    A trimmer is nor a farrier. Someone using only synthetic shoes is not a farrier.

    Let me be more specific. A trimmer that occasionally uses glue on synthetics, because they believe metal shoes are bad, should not be calling themselves a farrier.

    It does appear that some that...

    Not a trick question....

    What is a farrier?

    What is your definition of a farrier?



    Is a trimmer, new to the profession, that puts on an occasional glue on product considered a farrier? Should they be promoting themselves as a farrier?

    Does it really work? How long does it last? What about in climates much colder then Florida, with snow, ice and mud?

    What is a rescue?

    A group I belong to wants to take up a collection for a horse rescue. Now the debate begins. Some have a specific rescue in mind. Some of the rescues just buy from the kill pen...

    Contracts aren't worth the paper they are printed on. BOs can change "the rules" at will or ignore them. The only thing a boarder can do is move, if dissatisfied.

    I've come to the opinion, boarding is a crap shoot. Even with rules in place and all the promises made by barn owners, boarders have to take what they get. As one barn owner said to me, my place, I...

    Where does the liability end???

    A not so uncommon occurence, with tragic ends. Yes, hypothetical, but worthy of discussion.
