One of the more stressful things about moving home to Bozeman was the search for a new farrier. To make the process a bit easier, I had Rose's feet trimmed right before we left Portland. However, it was so muddy and wet here that after just four weeks, she'd grown a good amount of hoof and her good old flare came back in style. So after looking at a lot of feet around my barn and getting recommendations I decided to try out the guy who trimmed her feet this past Friday. He was terrific! Not only did he do a beautiful job on her feet, looking at each on individually and properly balancing them, he handled her wonderfully. He's a really patient, gentle guy, and definitely knows how to handle the babies. Rose really seemed to liked him, and as such I couldn't have been more pleased about the whole thing.
Happy trails and swooshing tails!
