Step away from the computer,
So who is your farrier (talking about shoes not trims or barefoot) and how much does he charge for a full set of shoes and what area are you in?

I'm in Bangholme/Mentone.

I use Ben Pryse, $50 for a trim which is all that mine get, but $90 (i think) for shoes, and $110-20 or something like that for hot shoeing.
He has been fantastic, i honestly cannot recommend him high enough.

The forum drove me to drink. Remind me to thank it.
I'm in Central West NSW (which doesn't help you, Steph Surprised) and my farrier is Kevin Bell.
He charges $75 for a full set of hot shoes, and $30 for a trim.
He isn't taking any more clients as he's completely booked out.

My other half was charging $110 for hot shoing and $90 for a normal set of shoes, and $40 for a trim, $50 for a clydee.
But he dose not shoe any more for he has a bad back.

Andrew Long. Excellent farrier! Around $85 to $90 for a full set of shoes. And he hot shoes 99% of the time, not that I mind either way. He does a great job anyway.

And he is always on time and calls if there is any change, very thoughtful.

And he is great with the horses, very gentle and patient.

Troppo. Loco. Round the twist.
Just out of interest, do any of the farriers offer alternative shoes, such as the new plastics? Or do most just one type of shoe? I haven't used a farrier in years, just wondering if the shoes used have changed over the years.

I use Tony Mallia, best thing to have happened to my boy since he had a very close call with a pedal bone that looked as if it would start to rotate. He also does natural balance shoes

He charges me $100.00 to take my boy to his onsite forge in Pakenham and we've got eventing shoes on and he is hot shod. His shoes stay on past 7 weeks not the old 3 weeks I would get from other farriers.

Our farrier is Ken Bryant from Kilmore who is absolutely the best. He is qualified and a champion competition farrier. Not only that, his trims and hot shoeing are fantastic, his prices are very reasonable, he's always reliable and he is THE most patient man! We are so lucky to have him.

My farrier uses whatever shoe the horse needs! He has had to change shoes a couple of times on the new stallion at work due to what happened with his feet when he was young.

I was using Warran Ackers he is a good friend but just too busy.. Now am making the move to Nick Temby he is also a good friend Waz was about $70.00 - $80.00 that is hot shoeing and Nick, well I don't know yet we are only doing trims at the moment

Edited to say Wallan Whittlesea area



Nick was my farrier when I lived at mum's he was the best and sorted out many problems in a nice and caring way outside of shoeing too for me when I was a novice.

I have my own farrier my lovely Tim who is sometimes slack and have to be nice and do othe things to get them done but hey I don't have to pay my husband for doing it. Trevor bellman is his father is a super farrier.

I second Colin Lacey...

He is great.. super reliable.. when he says a time.. you better be there.. cause he is never late!!

super reliable.. great prices.. and the best thing is that he has so many qualifications behind him to help sort out the problems..

Been told he is never to retire!!!
