Geeze....thanks for the vote of confidence Shoesofiron.Maybe those of us who start late are doing it for the love of the trade and not the money to be made......possibly this could make the difference.I'm not going to be out to make a quick buck.To many of those around this area. :rolleyes:

OK, Karen is tough :). Karen have you found a school yet? How about Danny Wards school near Virginia, great school and Dannie Ward is also great. Still pretty close. 30 is not old, but your going definately going to find muscles you never knew you had, I did and they still ache. I also found that shoeing for a liveing does not help my abs, pot belly and strong back :)

Phil,

Ya' just gotta look at it in the right light. Its not a pot belly at all. As I tell my daughter, why would I settle for a six pack(abs) when I can have a pony keg? :D Especially one that comes with a non-clogging spigot.

We have quite a few of us in maine who came to farriery in our 30's as corporate refugees. Phil and myself you know from the boards. 2 who don't post here (and are excellent farriers) are Ann Melville and Fred Bowers. Freds one of the few CJF's in maine and has helped me a great deal with forge work. But the best tip fred ever gave me was find a very good massage therapist and get a theraputic deep tissue massage every 2 weeks. I can't tell you what a difference it makes! I also took up Yoga and find that indespensible as well. I consider myself an aging athlete and take a sportsmedicine approach to my shoeing career.

This has to be the longest running thread of all time. I don't think it is the age at which you start as much as what you are made of. I have seen people quit that were young and physically suited to be a farrier. At a shade over six feet and 220lbs (34 waist and no pot belly :cool: ) I have be told by a few people, including some family members, that I'm too big to be a farrier and won't last. Well going on five years with no plans to stop. At 42 I think I still have at least 10 to 15 years left. I don't shoe as many as most of you, not by choice, since I only retired from the military 8 months ago and I'm trying the old fashioned word of mouth way to build a business. I do know that in the spring and summer when it's busier I feel better physically. Which leads me to the point of all this rambling. Karen, make sure you have enough horses for you to work at least a day or two each week. I initially went to school to do my own only. Doing three horses every six weeks killed me even when I was five years younger. Hang in there, if you have the mettle to do it you will. If you are like me when someone says I CAN'T do something it means the challenge is on. Good luck and keep us posted.

John has some good points. I started shoeing to work my way thru college, then dropped back to doing my own and a few friends. I've always stayed in good physical shape, but as I got into my late 30's, I suddenly realized that I could no longer shoe shoe a little bit and be comfortable. I had to shoe on a regular basis or let someone else do it. I went to Doug Butler's advanced class to upgrade my skills and started shoeing for the public. Now at the age of 67, I'm still shoeing and still enjoying it. With the kids on their own, the mortgage paid and the retirement accounts in decent shape, I don't shoe as much as I did (I truly only take the ones I like), and I really don't need to shoe at all, but I feel better when I'm physically active. I tend to schedule one client a day now. If they have one horse, that's OK. If they have more than five, I'll come back tomorrow. Now I can travel and ride my own horses.

The best things about the good old days -- I wasn't good and I wasn't old.

The older I get, the more horses I shoe, the fewer things that I can absolutely, positively fix.

Hi Karen ... don't let the naysayers git ya down. First of all I'm of the female persuasion and a grandmother of 4. I care for 17 horses on my farm. I train (any age including colt starting) and I trim hooves. Secondly, I took this up with a professional mind set 5 years ago at the age of 48. I'm now 53 -- started with regular, professional clients 2 years ago at 51. Been trimming my own guys for a long time (since the 80's) in between farrier visits. (cleaning up the rough edges, shaping, etc.) At 48 I could do maybe, 2 horses a day, full trim, but it would take me a long time. Now, at 53 I can do 6 - 8 horses a day and if they're simply maintenance then it takes me approx. 1/2 hr. per horse. And, I love drafts! Don't much like it when they aren't trained properly to stand for hoof work but I love 'em all the same and *do* work on them. I trim, tho, and don't shoe. Thirdly, I believe we're neighbors. I live in Douglas just a mile from the RI border. Which brings me to this. Shoot me an email and we can discuss apprenticing and all that if you'd be interested. I always could use an extra hand or two.

Cab,
This is realy not the place to brag about triming eight horses. All at one time? each foot? Then what do you do after breakfast? I realy do mean this in fun, your post was like a hanging curve ball for those of us who consider eight trims a day off. when you do tens of thousands (twenty a week, fifty weeks a year, twelve years.....) remember, we trim when we shoe.

Karen,
Shoeing is not twice the work of triming, it's got to be ten times at least, and the knoledge, and skill have to be fifty times more.
I started at thirty five and was too fat, but have been able to gain some weight since. Been going twelve years and can handle more work now than when I started.

Rick,
I have great, strong, washboard abbs. They just kinda hide under the washtub.

Cab,
Well good. I'm glad to see that I have challanged and inspired you. A couple of more years and we'll have you shoeing half a dozen before lunch!
However, my barefoot friend, I would that you take a few days now and have a Merry Christmas. Enjoy the family and remember the One we celebrate!

God Bless,
Bill

karen b. do not be discouraged cornell has a lack of horses you will be spending your time almost exclusivly on forge work with no place to apply it.mike may be a fine instructor but you will be lucky to do anything but discuss the theory of how to put a shoe on.Danny Ward is a fine choice reasonably close.if it was my money cornell would not be the choice good luck.

Are there any schools anyone would absolutely stay away from? You can send me an e-mail or private message if it is inappropriate to post negative things here.Also, Danny Wards website is not currently working.Is there a new link for him?

It may be out of business now, but you should avoid the school I went to. I shouldn't name names but the initials are Okalhoma Horseshoeing School.
