    MUCH of the chronic lameness I encounter is a result of chronic no-show on the part of the hoof care provider. If that was the only thing you had going for you it already puts YOUR standards and competency well above the market. What does that say about the state of "hoof care profesion" when the profession itself is famous for not showing up?
    AMEN brother! I'd never thought to see an honest to gawd farrier say that. I'm stunned!

    Some of 'em think it is a badge of honor to be overbooked and underpaid.
    You mean OVERPAID don't cha?

    Though I must admit the really high priced farriers (and trimmers) ALWAYS show up, usually on time too.

    I'm sure it's been mentioned somewhere in this 23 pages worth but that horse has more problems than just its trim. Barefoot or what have you. I want to know what the poor horse is being fed that made it that laminitic!! That's not just mechanical.
