Stock Up And Take Stock

Use this Shoeing Showcase issue to help you prepare for the busiest months of the hoof-care year

Spring is a good time to take stock of the tools and products you use in performing your job. Are there new products that would pay off on your bottom line? Are you up on the latest tips and techniques suggested by retailers and manufacturers?

Each April, American Farriers Journal publishes the Shoeing Showcase, our annual Farrier Product & How-To Issue.

As the title and description clearly imply, this issue is devoted to products. It contains by far the biggest product section of the year. This year it begins on Page 48, and includes more than 260 products — both brand new and time-tested — that you can use in your hoof-care work or recommend to your clients.

You’ll find a Reader Service Number for each product in the section (as you will with ads). As with every issue of AFJ, you can use these numbers to obtain additional information about the products that interest you. Use the Reader Service Cards located between Pages 88 and 89, or visit our website at This puts you in charge of letting manufacturers and retailers know which products have caught your eye.

Time To Review

This is a time when you can really benefit from having kept good records of your farrier business. Review your purchasing records…
