What to expect when you call to make an appointment;
You will be asked questions about your animals age, sex and breed, training level and use, previous hoof care , other husbandry questions like feeding practices and shelter availability. Exact street address and any road side markers for locating your farm and a contact phone number . Appointments are available any day of the week from late morning to early afternoon.
Imagine making a farrier appointment and having the farrier show up on time, treat your animal with kindness and respect, doing a detailed balanced barefoot hoof trim and having the option to set up the next hoof trim appointment at the time of payment. Having the time and knowledge to review feed bag and supplement labels with you. Writing any suggestions on your bill along with that important next appointment date. Making that follow up appointment is crucial to keeping the hooves healthy and balanced. There will be a reminder/confirmation call or text the day before appointments. I am also available by phone/text should you have additional questions at any time. i would love to hear from you, just call or text 360-880-3264
