    I think mine could – the other farrier in the barn (or probably his assistant) – Can’t

    Last week I came out to the barn to find that ONE of my horse’s feet had been trimmed… again! Seems that the other farrier at the barn remembers I am not his client afterhe gets one foot done.

    I know this isn't 'funny', but this had me You would think he would at least go ahead and do the other foot so it's even! Maybe you should use one of those paint markers on his foot and leave a note for absent-minded farrier

    Absolutely. He'd just have to look for the really crooked ones .

    I could not, however, picks his hindquarters out of a lineup. I usually have my horse on crossties so I can stand near him so I can see what he's doing.

    I could pick out his bum in a line up, I have no doubt at all in my ability to do that.

    He could pick out my horse's feet in a line up I'm quite sure as well, he sees them a lot!

    I know! i thought about that as well, at least match them up! Last time it was a day after she had been trimmed - so all he did was clean up a fog.

    Also, my horse is a 16.2 LEOPARD appaloosa! Kinda a hard horse to miss! There aren't any other appaloosas at the barn, so really do not know what he was thinking!

    Ugh. I grabbed the wrong quote! Meant to get the one about whether the farrier can pick out the clients horses' feet.

    I just have to ask...were the farriers wearing clothes in the pics?

    I trim some Friesians that I can't tell apart until I look at their feet!

    Were the farrier butts clad?
