Re: Barefoot trimmer not equine podaitrist

Dear Jamiep, Hi Thanks for your comment, I keep my identity un-revealed for a few reasons. I'll try to explain. But firstly, it has nothing to do with my credentials as you refer to, and my credibility is not affected if I reveal my identity or not. My credibility is simply my credibility. You say I...

Re: Views about Bare Foot Trimmer Case

Tom knows whats going on inside an equine foot, he understands the sole corium, its position, its function(s). he acted to protect it, and assist the horse to grow a new...

Too Many Apprentices

I've heard around the traps, on the highways and by-ways of the Uk farriers whinging about too many apprentices coming through the education system. These apprentices seem to be the cause of farriers loosing work, or business not as good as it once was in the good ol days. I'd love to see the real f...
