    Hi, i've rang every farrier/blacksmith in the yellow phone book and their either full, on holidays or won't do the baldivis area. My boys feet have 2 REALLY big cracks in them and i need someone 2 trim them ASAP. Does anyone know of a farrier in the baldivis area? (i don't care about price). Thanks heaps.

    I've only had the horse 8 weeks. I started looking for a farrier 2 weeks ago (his last owner got them done the same week i got him). Yes that would be great Lisa. I can't transport him Dirtbug coz i don't have a float, but thanks.

    thats ok lauren

    i do wish you good luck in getting a farrier asap, can you ring his last owners and get the name of his last farrier...

    he might want to keep your horse on his books so to speak :)

    Because i have moved the horse to a new agistment he won't come out that far. Thanks for your well wishes. Hopefully the farrier Lisa knows will turn out ok... otherwise i'm stuck!.. :D

    Good luck Lauren. A lot of farriers have holidays over Christmas/New Year and then have to catch up on their backlog...

    I believe my old retired farrier, Graham Hall, has a son that now does farriery. Sorry don't remember what the son's name is, but the Dad will know and his number is 94101028. Worth a try.

    Thanks Wendy, i gave his dad a call. his son is named Justin. I rang but their was no call. So i'll try again later. I never realised how hard it was to get a farrier.
