    Default Good shoer who will travel for single horse? N. Houston

    Anybody know a good shoer who will travel for a single horse? I'm in the Spring area.

    Am not liking how the barn shoer balanced (or not!) my old horse's feet..and have a new little gaited mare BADLY need of a good, balanced, trim or shoe.

    Most of the farriers I know won't travel for a single horse, tho. Any help appreciated.

    Are there other barns nearby that might have a better farrier? If you can get one who is coming close to where you are, they may swing by for one horse. My farrier when living in Ohio came about an hour from his home, but did it several others between here and there.
    Another option if you can, would be to consider trailering said horse to where the new farrier is.
    Can't help w/ names, I'm way far away...
