I was surprised to see that a letter to the editor was actually printed about the farriers.
The female who wrote the letter sounds like she has a grudge against these gentlemen. I personally use the two farriers and trust them with my horse. As for not being around when someone is caring for your animal is irresponsible on your part. If you were not there how can you make any claims.
I just want to say something on their behalf.
I use these gentlemen, I observed their work before having them trim my horse and am convince they would not hit an animal.
As for not finding them listed with the AFA well, I am a nurse and if you called the American Nurse Association would they have heard of me?
