    Default Need opinions on farriers in OK

    I've recently moved to Oklahoma and need to find a good farrier. My horse is somewhat complicated to shoe and I had problems finding someone to keep him sound the last time I moved to a new State, so I'm hoping to make a more informed decision this time.
    My old farrier asked some contacts for referrals outside of Tulsa, and was given three names (Stark, Penick and Proulx). Does anyone have experience with any of these guys?

    Please PM me if that's easier.

    Thanks very much,
    Susan

    John Muldoon, used to be out of Alex and did the the Smicklas's farm as well as many large farms in the area. Very confident persona..but the best. I don't know where he is out of now, but any of the vet hospitals should be able to get a number for you

    I also highly recommend John Muldoon! He works very extensively with a lot of vets. He is very skilled and I will not let anyone else touch my horses. He has done mine for probably 25years at least. PM me for phone number.

    John is currently doing my horse and said horse and I are very pleased. We are in OKC and he has been doing a LOT of work out of Oakridge (equine hospital) lately which is convenient for me since I'm only a mile away. But of course, now that I have a close farrier he stopped throwing a shoe every week complements of John's work.
