Now Now slowhand dont get all defensive. I haven't an axe to grind at all, you obviously misunderstood my intentions when posting. The fact is that loads of barefoot advocates who are trying to discredit farriers to further their case for going barefoot are going through these posts, beleive me, and...

Slow hand, In regards to your comment about barefoot trimmers, I find that totally unacceptable and unethical for a farrier, who should have the horses welfare as a first priority, to say. And that makes me question you as a competant farrier. I must say that whether you have the time to make a shoe...

PNB Well that sounds very worrying, and infuriating for those who want to see true progresion in this field of expertise. How it can be changed is another matter and far beyond my knowledge on regulations ect to be able to comment further. I wish you all the luck for the future in your involvement w...

Hi PNB I see where yo are coming from now thanks. My worry is this still would not regulate owners wanting to proceed in gaining a certificate to be able to do it them selves as they can with the barefoot trim courses. If it not available as formal training they will still go to these five day cours...

PNB, also if there was a course like this I would be interested in it myself. Because I feel that I would get the training I need. I cannot see how you could possibly in only five days as offered by some of the trimmer courses now. There is just too much to learn. It would take more than that just t...

My apologies PNB, I misunderstood what you were saying obviously. No hard feelings then I hope. Yes I am in agreement that barefoot trimmers should be better regulated in regard for formal training, of course. I hope it will only be a matter of time and eagerly awaited for by most. (It will be inter...

Good for you Admin, . although that really didn't teach me anything in particular about these types of shoes. Did you have them made specifically? did you use them? what was the effects? Can I say, when I mentioned them I was refering to new alternatives or even fads. But find it interesting that th...

Really John! Out of interest then, who uses them? and for what reason? Because its the first time I have heard about it. I have found no literature about them, no research, no data and no farrier I have ever been in contact with uses, advices on, suggests or knows about them. In what context have th...

PNB Thank you for clearing up the misunderstanding with classes for me. I am surprised that no body has 'designed' a rubber shoe as an alternative. A this would seem to correct a lot of current arguements in regards to weight effects, less rigidity and concussion? I am afraid you are totally wrong i...

PNB Thank you for your response, It has also been very informative. I stand by one of my previous quotes in that: I would have thought because of the expertise needed and the dire effects on an animals welfare if got wrong they would be more stringent in who they allowed to trade under the name. Thi...

For any one who may be interested this is the response from the FRC to my queries regarding farrier status. They were very prompt. Dear Dawn, I am assuming that you have been looking at the "Find a Farrier" option on the Council's website, which has a slightly abbreviated form of the Register concen...

HI PNB It sounds like the council have an answer for everything!. In your case, I think It unfair that you have to reach into your own pocket to discuss farriers methods, needs ect. I can understand that some ifo may not need to be of access to the general public, but between registered farriers, is...

getting expert advice

would it be fair to say that, if owners wanted to get advice in regards to farriery then it would be best to go to the farriers forum rather than the horseowners? if so it would be refreshing if we could get some useful information that is aimed at educating us rather than patronising us. If there i...

John, I am sorry to say that you are a patronising old know it all. And it is no wonder 'owners' find it so hard to approach you so called experts for advice for simply answered questions. and decide instead to give their own opinions so readily, much to the dismay of you farriers I bet. It is a pit...

John do you mean the postings to me personally or do you want me to scrall through all of them. I just want to know, 1. if a farrier is on the register he can shoe legally even though he has not got the relevant qualifications, as with a class II farrier. yes or no. And, 2. If so would he be insured...

Your post seems to have repeated itself. Yes, I understand what you are saying, but us as owners generally need something to go on to makes us feel at least half way reassured that the person doing our horses hooves have the necessary four year training. I know in a lot of equine trades, say instruc...

class of farrier

Thanks John, So if there is a practising farrier which is only class two, by all accounts he is still allowed to earn money doing this and nothing can be done? If he has no qualifications, I assume he must have done some training then not followed it further, or failed in which case, should he reall...

Could I just query in regards to missing info. When lokking on the register are you not supposed to be able to see how long the farrier has been registered or practising? When I look there is just their names, address and phone number. Also when a farrier is on part one it is because they are fully ...
