We moved from Oklahoma to the Buffalo, TX area a few months ago and I had a really good barefoot trimmer that I need to replace.  Looking for suggestions, it can be a regular farrier who does trims.  I've been doing it myself the last 2 times but I only have 2 horses and they are very easy to do, so I guess I could continue, but the heat and age is getting to me and it would be nice to find someone.  I can haul my horses a reasonable distance to have them done.  Thanks for any names!

I don't live close to Buffalo but you might try calling the local vet for a recommendation.  Our local equine vet has someone that comes to trim and shoe one day a week at his clinic.

Doing very well, thanks for asking.  I got married to my soulmate, Paul 4 years ago and then sold my half of Trailer Depot to my partners in Jan. 2020.  We wanted to get out of tornado alley and the wind and unpredictable winters.  We LOVE east Texas and bought a barndominium and 4 acres.  I have 2 horses and once I get everything in place where I can ride daily, I'll go to some barrel races again.  I talked to my vet/friend/equine dentist, Di Carper last night about how hard it is to get reliable people to work on your horses, no matter what it is.  I just did the front feet on my gelding this morning and I have to stop.  Asking a vet was a great idea...I should have thought of that, but moving is sooooo hard and getting settled.  Hope you are ok too...I miss my friends!

I do not know anyone specifically in that area - but i asked my farrier if he goes up there or for a recommendation.  I have a friend in Buffalo, and she hauls her horses somewhere and the guy is super busy, does not travel, you have to go to him.....

Thanks!  Stopped at the vet in Madisonville this morning after my husband's chiro appt. and they gave me Colin Reed's name.  I called him and he goes right by here on his way to another client, so he 's putting me on his schedule.  I hope it all works out for both of us!  We were talking to a couple at the vet office and they also said everyone is super busy and you mainly have to haul to them.

You are a very short distance from Bryan/College Station. There is a farrier at Dr Honnas' that is excellent. We used to haul 3 hours down there for him to shoe our horses. It has been awhile but pretty sure his name is Hatfield. You can call Dr Honnas' clinic. He is located in one of the back buildings there.

My girlfriend uses a gentleman named Coy 903-388-9700 - he said he is accepting new clients.  They are very happy with him - if things don't work out or you need a backup plan.
