    Farrier fees

    My farrier just increased his trimming fee (no shoes) from $30/horse to $35/horse. This isn't breaking the bank and he does a fantastic job, so I have no issues with the increase. But I am curious what others pay for trimming.

    Our horses are shod. All 4 feet.

    Our farrier charges us $80 a set but they are handmade shoes and the horses are hot shod.

    Neither of our horses have gone lame since he started shoeing them unless they have none then they go lame real fast.

    I pay $40 per horse for trim, $110 for trim plus shoes just on front, and $140 for trim and shoes on all four.

    Our barn,
    I am pretty sure is $25 for a trim
    and $80 for shoes but since I don't own my own horse,
    I am not positive.
    Next time you say riding isn't a sport - I'll let you send my horse towards a solid obstacle that is more than half my height.

    $35 or $40 for a trim, can't remember since "I" decided to start doing the trimming myself. Shoeing is about $95 or so, always more for me since I have extra stuff done.

    SE Minn. $25 for a trim just fronts or either $50 or $60, I don't remember pulled shoes off back in Nov. and are leaving them barefoot for winter. Our farrier also charges a farm call I think it is $8 or $10, which I think is just fine with the price of gas.
