    Rob is the absolutely best farrier I have found and Chris Cahill for body work is a DVM and an amazing collegue for getting the animals to feel "right".
    I use several vets but for show horses I like Scott Kendall ( he is incidently a great equine reproduction specialist) in Versailles and I use Jill Westerholm from Hagyard. They both work very well in colaberating with any "team" of rider, trainer, farrier, and vet to work with each animal individually for optimal results.

    I'd also recommend Jenn O'Neill at Antebellum Farm. She's wonderful.

    Now that the OP has had a few days, we merged the threads on this topic from the discipline-specific forums to one here in Off Course to keep the info together.

    Thanks!

    You are funny! My husband and I have been renting farms for years, and that included doing all our own mowing, fence repairs, ring dragging, etc. in addition to horse care. So it's all good and happy for me! now I'll have no more commute to the farm 2 (or more) times a day. Just walk down the driveway. Happy Happy Happy Dance! lol

    And yes, please pm me any names you have. They are appreciated.

    I want to thank everyone for not just their contacts, but their welcomes! I'm so excited that I just about can't see straight. And thank you too, to everyone who PMed me as well with additional information. I hope to meet several of you in the future. If any of you need trail riding buddies, I love to trail ride too.

    Thanks again,

    FWIW, Giles in Georgetown seems to be slowly going out of business. They may have a little leftover hay & straw available, but have little else. I would also strongly suggest Sallee Horse Vans in Lexington for all your trailer service. They do a fantastic job!!

    I live south of Lexington so nothing to add but, it sounds like it may be time for a central KY COTH gathering.

    That sounds great to me. The hard part about moving so far away is I don't get to bring my horse-y friends with me, so I'm looking forward to meeting new people. I got several PMs with offers to meet and trail ride too, which is wonderful.

    I think once we get moved and "mostly" settled, I'll instigate a central KY COTH gathering.

    I'm about 2 hours east of Lexington, stationed at Fort Knox, but welcome to the state! If anybody does a central KY meet up... I'm game!

    I use McCauley Bros feed and really like it, and their service.

    Horse reproduction, I used Dr. Etta Bradecamp from Rood and Riddle who got my mare in foal with frozen, one try.

    A great topic for me too as we are moving to our farmette in Paris next week. We drive so don't have the same needs as riders, but need low NSC hay for our airfern ponies. I am going up this weekend to kill some lovely bluegrass for a dry lot. Let me know if you do have a meeting of the central KY people.

    You probably already got this suggestion but you will meet a ton of great people if you join MSEDA: http://www.mseda.org/.

    I REALLY can't wait to move now. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and it even looks like there will be people to ride with!

    Thank you again, to everyone who has given me contact names and numbers. It really put my mind at ease.
