Some horse owners might have a slew of equine professionals at their fingertips - trainers, instructors, veterinarians, nutritionists and fitters. Yet, others are on their own and trust one of the equine professionals they interact with - their farrier.
Most farriers can list a number of physical ailments. For some it's the back. Others suffer from tennis elbow. But what few realize is that a simple change of posture under the horse and beginning daily exercise can ward off part of the cumulative work trauma.
Much like the canary in the coal mine that identifies a dangerous situation, nutrient deficiencies often show up in the hoof wall and sole growth before they’re readily observed in the rest of the horse
In this episode, Arizona farrier Eric Billingsley shows the 4-Star gooseneck trailer and truck he relies on to navigate the hilly, desert country he calls home. He purchased and designed that trailer about 20 years ago and it continues to provide Billingsley and his apprentices with business efficiency and peace of mind.
