Hoof Trimming

All hooved animals need regular attention to maintain good hoof health. I will trim horses, donkeys, mules, goats, sheep, llamas, alpacas, and cattle.

I do not trim pigs.

My rates for ruminants vary based on distance and quantity. I do not have a table for cattle so they will need to be sedated by a vet for me to work on.

Equine Trimming & Shoeing

Equine hooves need more attention than ruminants and must be kept on a schedule to maintain health and soundness. This schedule varies by individual though most fall in a 4 to 6 week cycle quite nicely. I prefer to keep horses barefoot as I believe that it is the healthiest option. However, I do shoe using polyurethane, steel, and aluminum shoes. If your horse needs to be shod for any reason from rehab to performance, please don't hesitate to reach out. The photo to the right shows a draft cross gelding in the Easy Care Versa Lite, he wears these to protect his feet from the roadway and provide traction while he pulls a cart. I can do everything from casting to glue ons and everything in between. I tailor my work to fit each individual horse that I work on to make sure their feet can be as healthy and comfortable as possible!

Terms of Service

  • Business hours are 8am to 8pm Monday through Friday. Please refrain from calling or texting outside of these hours.

  • If there is an emergency with your horse it is most likely a vet call, not a farrier call. There are rarely true emergencies that occur under the scope of farrier care.

  • I do NOT sedate horses. If your horse needs to be sedated for hoof care then a vet will need to be present for sedation or you will need to get sedatives from your vet and administer them yourself.

  • If your horse has a foreign object puncturing the hoof, call the vet BEFORE you remove it.

  • Payment is due on the day of service. Cash, check, Zelle, and Venmo are accepted. There is an additional fee for credit cards. Payment failure will result in termination of service.

  • Cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance or a cancellation fee ($50) will be incurred. Allowances will be made for true emergencies. Repeated cancellations will result in termination of service.

  • Horses must stay on a minimum of a 6-week rotation. Some will require more frequent care in order to achieve and/or maintain a healthy hoof.

  • Appointment confirmation is required within a week of the appointment.

  • Please have your horse(s) caught by the scheduled appointment time.

  • Please do not feed or groom your horse(s) during the appointment.

  • There must be an adult present during the appointment unless otherwise discussed.

  • Handlers should refrain from cell phone use during the appointment.

  • Commercially produced fly spray is a MUST during fly season. Homemade fly sprays do not work. If you cannot provide any there will be a $5 fly spray fee.

  • Single horse stops will have a $10 trip fee added.

  • A clean, dry workspace is necessary. Shade is required in warmer weather. Fans are appreciated.

  • Horses cannot be muddy OR wet. Both make it dangerous to work on them due to slippery legs and it destroys tools.

  • If your horse has hoof issues or has experienced laminitis or founder it is highly suggested that you get x-rays taken. They will help provide more guidance than any external markers ever could.
