Questions You May Have About Me
Q. Do you Beat Horses?
A. No I never beat horses -- ever!
Q. Do you discipline horses you work on?
A. Yes, I do -- sometimes a tap or calculated jab in the ribs to get their attention. I only hit a horse if they bite, kick or they're going to literally use me for a seat cushion. I never discipline in anger.
Q. Do you use behavioral drugs on horses to shoe them?
A. 2 Part Answer. 1. I never personally drug horses under any circumstance. Any drugs used during a procedure will be administered by a veterinarian, under veterinary supervision only, per veterinary recommendation. 2. Only for special cases such as horses with serious Laminitis (Founder) might I recommend using some kind of pain killer. But - I never have yet.
Q. Do you give horses trimming/hoof care training lessons?
A. Yes I do. A training session costs the same as an actual work session.
Q. Do I make emergency calls?
A. Yes I do.
Q. Do emergency calls cost more?
A. Yes, absolutely.
Q. Will you work with a Vet on a lame horse?
A. Yes, I prefer to work with a vet when dealing
with a lame horse.
