farrier in training
Like this post?
next month i will be attending a horseshoeing school that works with UC Davis, and i'm starting to get really nervous!
i've worked with horses and animals all my life, but i have NO experience shoeing or trimming hooves aside from sanding the ridges of miniature show horses for the training center i work for. (now don't jump to conclusions! the center i work for is incredibly humane... i know that there is a lot of shady business out there in the show world, especially with miniatures, but the man i work for is wonderful to all his and his clients' horses.)
i was wondering if any of you out there were farriers by trade or by hobby, and if so have any words of wisdom that i can keep in mind over the next few months while i'm in school and trying to get my little business together. i would greatly appreciate any little tidbit of supportive wisdom, as i am beginning to feel pretty out of my comfort zone (and class hasn't even STARTED yet...)
