    No. Never. I did not know this was even a 'thing' until I saw that post.

    My farrier just refuses to work on the unruly ones.

    NO! If the horse needs medicating I handle it.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    There is NO way I would let my farrier - or any farrier - give my horse an injection. For that matter, with liability, I can't for the life of me see why any farrier would even want to. As a long time horse owner, I am quite comfortable giving my horses IM and IV injections, though I much prefer sublingual over IM when possible.

    I have given other horses injections in a pinch, but again, with liability being what it is these days, I only do it in an emergancy.
