Re: RC: Re: Horseshoes???
Just ask...or be sly and say, "Hey, we were discussing horseshoes on
Ridecamp and everybody was sharing their "favorite" shoe but I couldn't
tell them exactly what kind I use. Would you mind enlightening me?".
Nelson views every question as an opportunity to educate...not meaning that
the client is ignorant. Sometimes owners may have "heard" something or
have a misconception or miscommunication that can quickly be cleared up
with a simple question of What, why, where, etc...Tell him you WANT to know
what he is doing so you can be a better horseperson. Also, if your farrier
were ever hurt and couldn't take care of your horse for a period of time,
you would know what your farrier is doing so a new one could continue his
work and keep your horse going in good shape. Take the leap and start
asking questions. I bet you are pleasantly surprised by his
response...unless, of course, he is one of those who feels questions are
"telling" him what to do. I don't think there are that many of those
farriers out there....I hope. :) Good luck and tell us what you find
out!! And how he reacts to your questions! :)
