    Default New farrier available in NC (Southern Pines/Raleigh/Greensboro/Chapel Hill area)

    I am trying to get my farrier some extra business, so I can make it more affordable. I only have a few horses for him to do. I've moved back and forth between South West Virginia/ Southern Pines NC area and Ocala Florida for the past few years. I've been using him for a long time and I'm not willing to give him up!

    John Crawford Redgate ordinarily works in Wellington, and does some work in Ocala.( I use his full name because many people know him by his middle name in Wellington.) He is beginning to do bi-weekly trips up to the Southern Pines and Raleigh area. He primarily does Hunters, Jumpers, Eventers, and Dressage horses although he has experience shoeing all disciplines. He has amazing credentials, a really soft presence and excellent patience with the horses, he returns calls, shows up on time (Always a bonus), and despite his travel costs remains affordable. My horse’s feet look fantastic and well balanced. He is a big believer in following the angles of the leg that are there, not trying to "correct" the foot. His number is (561)789-0024.

    When my horse comes home from lease this fall/winter, I may need a new farrier as I doubt my spot has been held. I'll keep him in mind. Thanks for the update!
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.
