|I've been a farrier now for 16 years, 15 years full-time. The area I cover is
as far out as roughly an hour and a half from Rhinelander.
There are other clues elsewhere in this website as to who I am and what I
do. I hope you browse around and find it useful.
The more time one spends in this field the more of a feel he gets for equine
lamenesses and associated problems. I do enjoy the diagnosis and treatment
of lamenesses in the horse.
I must mention that after growing up within, and spending a great deal of
time 'in and around' the show horse business, forgive me but I am a little
partial toward the less "showy", more practical, areas of the horse industry.
There's nothing wrong with the "show horse" end of things, in and of itself,
I'm just fairly worn-out on the "show horse" way of looking at things. I've
been there already, at every level, and I've had my fill. It's become a little
much more like "show business" than "horse business" and I'd rather not
gravitate in that direction any more than I have to. Although I do enjoy
the show barns that I currently do. And there are also a lot of "show
horse" oriented people who I get on with very well. But I do like to focus
mainly on lameness diagnosis and treatment/prevention. Well...and serving
the pleasure, performance and sport horse.
