When I want time off all I do is but an X across the days on the schedule to remind me not to schedule on those days. I by chance I decide to take time off when I have scheduled work I just call my customers and reschedule my appointment for before or after the period I want off. So far it has worked well with me and my customers.

The nice thing about working for yourself is being able to plan time off. Like already said, if you are good - in being on time, keeping appointments, and service after shoeing, then your customers will understand you wanting time off. Just plan ahead for it.

I got 2 german shepards, but don't take them with me, as I don't want problems with owners dogs. On Fridays I work at home. My 2 dogs run loose around when people come. It is not my position to keep them tied up if some one comes with their dogs. I have had one or two comment about it. My reply is "This is their home and I won't tie them from jumping up on your car because you got your dog. This is the reason I don't bring mine to your house." Never any problems, people understand and next time they don't have their's with them.

Do you plan your vacations around the show season? It seems to make sense to take your time off in the winter when nobody's competing and a lot of folks have pulled shoes. On the flipside, I'd imagine if I were doing this for a living instead of a theoretically-almost-income-generating hobby I would have to take time in the height of the season for sanity's sake. I swear the guy I used when I first got into horses worked six and a half days a week for 12 hours a day when show season was in full swing. He was very, very good. He is no longer shoeing and I think it's just because he completely burned himself out.

I take my girls with me almost everywhere. I think I need a bigger truck.:D

Hi all,

I really wanted to ask some working farriers two questions about their way of life...they might seem trivial, but the answers are pretty important to me as far as committing to a career...lets assume for just a minute that I have the passion and the drive and I find a way to pick up the education, skill and experience to be a farrier...

one.... is it possible to have a dog if he's well trained and well mannered? Would he have to stay in the truck at all the stops? I'm thinking it wouldn't go well at some farms with their own dogs..

two...assuming you have built up a practice that is a fairly light full time, say four days a week...is it possible to get away for a few weeks time off now and then? By juggling shoeing cycles and maybe having a farrier friend take care of emergencies? How long can you responsibly leave a practice and have satisified customers to come back to?


thanks so much for your comments...

Sickelhocks,you can't be serious? But i guess you are,because look how many posters responded? That is as funny as "Frank Black" the comedian
could use in one of his acts.But just because i thought it was funny,means nothing,i don't have any credibility anyway.................

No. It's not the dogs fault. Some barns will not allow them at all. Some horses don't get along with Fido. Some days you can but as a generic rule don't count on it.

I recently got back from a vacation in the tropics. I was out of town for 2+ weeks. You can do it. The trick is to just block out the time at least 90 days out and tell all customers that you will be out of town for that time frame. You will no doubt have to move some stops around to accommodate your clients needs. It helps a lot if you take your vacation during your slow season if you have one. Pairing up with somebody to cover each others emergency calls is dangerous. When you get back to town you may find yourself dealing with 2 weeks worth of screw ups and mad customers. This is a business that is based on your personal work. Not the company name.

I had a blue heeler the first several years that went with me everywhere. A super smart dog. He was stolen from the front porch of a bar while I was in there imparting wisdom to the patrons. Then I had a great Welsh Corgi that rode with me for years and hung out mostly under my truck when I worked. I still have him but he's too old to travel w me. I now have a jack russell pup but he is too crazy and ****** to go with me at the moment. Short haired dogs mean less shedding and hair in your mouth as you drive down the road with the windows open. And I have found most owners are more receptive to smaller dogs. If you have a larger breed even if it is well trained, they can be intimidating and worrisome to new clients and even other dogs that may not be so well trained. I have been travelling without a dog for a few years now, and to tell the truth it is better without one. One less thing to worry about and the truck stays cleaner.

I'm not real big on having dogs around but mine goes with me on long days and normally when the owner isn't around. He never gets in the way and is more like having a another person around than a dog.
