Horses is to pay particular attention to their SHOES.
It is just as essential to have your horse shod right as it is for
the rancher to have comfortable shoes on when he starts out
in the morning for a clay's work.
Have your horses shod before you start to haul your crop
of apples. We are expert horseshoers and take particular care
to shoe each horse as it should be shod. Bring in your horses
to us and feel assured that they have been shod right.
