Service Area and Travel Fees
My primary service area is western Maine (Franklin County) and clients within a 30 mile radius of Wilton do not pay any trip fee.
Clients outside this radius pay $1/mile trip fee.
You can always avoid paying a travel charge by trailering-in to our farm!
Your horse may require a little extra TLC. Sometimes it's just 10 or 15 minutes of patience, and that's part of what I consider standard farrier work. When I begin to feel more like a trainer or punching bag than a farrier, however, I will charge a training fee.
For horses who need more time than the scheduled farrier visit permits, I offer trailer-in training at our farm. Our large, 5' high, cedar round pen provides a safe comfortable setting for horses with behavioral issues to learn how to stand for the farrier.
One time training fee during appointment: $45
Fallen on hard times?
been there, and I want to help you keep your horse sound. If you can't
afford to pay, I may consider trading my services for work around our
farm (stall cleaning, clearing brush, etc) or for in-kind goods (garden
transplants, meat, canned food, etc). Contact me for details.
