[RC] Wonderful Farrier... - RDCARRIE

I know farriers are a hot topic - or they at least get a lot of people hot - 
I know our previous one made me see red more than once before we sent him 
packing.  But I've just got to brag on the one we've had for the past year or 
so.  He keeps appointments, returns calls promptly, does good work, and is 
great with the horses, including our 28 yr old who sometimes needs a few 
breaks while having his feet done.  If he needs to reschedule, he calls 
ahead.  Today he was to be here at 4:30 pm...he called me at work at 2 pm, 
saying that he was running behind and he'd be 30-60 minutes late to our 
place...he arrived at 4:55.  He listens to what I have to say about any 
little problems with how a horse is travelling and then makes adjustments to 
fix it.  And he's just a really nice guy.  Compare this to the guy we had 
before, who very seldom kept appointments, never called to reschedule, took 
days to return calls, etc. - it was like a treasure hunt to just track him 
down to find out what his latest excuse was for not showing up.  And our 5 
horses stand well for the farrier - we just drop the lead and they don't 
move...so it's not like we have poorly behaved horses.  Anyhow, if anyone in 
the vicinity of Huntsville, TX (he also travels out quite a ways) needs a 
farrier, I can recommend a good one.  :)
