Help my farrier has just announced he's moving! Can anyone recommend a decent farrier who doesn't cost the earth and is nice to the horses?
I'm on the Warwickshire/Northamptonshire/Leicestershire boarder.

I use Oliver Gregory, he's absolutely brilliant. Have used him for years and he's ever so good with my awkward mare and naughty youngster. I know he is quite busy though. His number is, 07748632288.

Also know Liam Whelan, he's a good friend and also good farrier! I don't have his number to hand but can get it for you.

Nah they are all rubbish. Theres a guy just back from travelling who is really good and has availability and is very reasonable on price. He is David Horton. Take a look at his website and and facebook, his number is 07841 343 631. He takes bookings by email too so have a look at his webpage or facebook for that. www.davidhortonfarrier.weebly.com

Without wishing to add fuel to the fire I have to agree with Fizzer I don't think its fair to slate anyone unless you have had a personal bad experience with them.
I had found David Hortons website so he was one number I already had but couldn't find any reviews on him.
I started this thread because I have had bad experiences in the past with both farriers and dentists so now do not like to use anyone I don't know without having some positive recommendations as I have a very sensitive old soul who can by easily upset so much so thanks to that dentist who I had out about 16 years ago he still has to be sedated to have his teeth done! (come to think of it I have a fairly sensitive young one too now I must attract them!)
