Phil came to Vermont and tested for his CF.

The man came prepared and though he didn't get it this time, he is on the cusp and will have it before the year is out would be my guess.

I believe Phill scored the HIGHEST score on the written exam out of over 9 people testing for their CF.
A 95 !!!!

Phils work on trimming and shoeing looks really good.

I am sure he will come on and give us the exact facts .

For anyone who hasn't seen Phils shoeing trailer get him to post recent pictures. It is set up soooooooooooo nice.

Congratulations from all of here at the VtFA (of which aPhil is a member) on a job well done my friend.

Hey Jim! it was so good to meet you and your wife..

Bruce buddy...as usual I don't understand your logic. He was "prepared" but not successful? It sounds like a contradiction to me.

Phils work on trimming and shoeing looks really good.

Good compared to what? The performance requirements for the test?

I am sure he will come on and give us the exact facts .

Whether he does or not, I wish him well in his pursuits.

Yesterday at the Wildenstein clinic, Mike told the story of how he failed the first shot he took at his Fellowship of the WCF. His thesis was supposed to have 3000 words or more. He figured that they wouldn't actually count the words. But he came up 13 words short. Had to retake the entire FWCF exam. Failed by %0.43 short on the word count. DANG! :eek:

Congratulations Phil

I wasn't prepared for this so
I had to go to the other side of the room,

to get my hat . . . put it on,

so I could take it off to you.

Well done . . .

Mike I do understand what you are saying, and it is a contradiction.
I am full of them at times.

Here is my point on this:

Anytime a person tests his abilities in front of his pears, in my book they are a success.


Phil has been on a long journey with a continuous desire to improve his skills.
This has just been another step along his journey.

Success doesn't always come in one shot for folks. Usually it is little steps that make up the whole picture.

In this industry many folks start out taking the steps but get discouraged or stop for one reason or another.

Phil has shown tenacity and stuck to his quest.

Phil has faced advercity all along the way and has learned from everyone.

In my opinion Phil could be a poster child for stick to itiveness and an inspiration for other farriers.

He has a family and bills and runs a successful business etc. like so many of us.
What Phil has done is made time to practice/study and apply himself instead of sitting infronty of the TV or such.

Phils desire to be a very knowledgeable and skilled farrier
is his motivation., and I APPLAUDE HIM....

SUCCESS ISN'T IN WINNING....IT IS IN THE TRY !!!!

Good going Phil

Mike did you find it easy or hard when you took the test…how long did you study and prepare for it. Im just wondering how much time one needs to devote for preparation..

Isn't that like asking how fast can one get to the top of a particular ladder? Some climb faster or slower than others. Some start at a higher or lower point on the ladder.

In Phil's case, we grab his ladder and shake it. Instead of falling off, he hangs on and keeps climbing. :D

I got a pic of Phil working in his shop. Phil's trailer seems to be laid out well and looks roomy enough to work in. I liked it. I am sure it is really nice in the winter, and in mud season, probably nice in the hot sun too, Nice going Phil. I did get a video of Timmy Bolduc doing his test and got it up on Youtube last night and posted a link to it over on the WCB site so his friends over there could see it.
It was great to meet you also Bruce, looking forward to seeing you again.

Vermont Farriers Assoc. President Mark Schnieder(hope I spelled that right) also put in a good showing. It was the first time I met him as well. He can really get it done under a horse.

Way to go Phil. Don't worry about some of the nay sayers. You have shown the testicular fortitude to step up and lay it on the line. Others, have/will not. Not that it matters, but you wanna guess who stands tall in my eyes?

Some came to only finish taking their written, some had to pass their shoe board and 9 took the practicle.
I believe four passed the practicle. (trimming shapeing shoe to fit foot and then shoeing.)

RE:Phil Armitage scored a 95 on his CF written !!!! 07 Jun 2009 20:27 #14

Thanks everyone, the AFA certification is truly and education and well worth the time and effort. I passed the written and shoe board. Two areas that I struggled with and figured the practical would be a walk in the park.

My internal clock needs work. What seemed like plenty of time 1 hr. to do front feet in keg shoes all of a sudden was running out. I thought I had plenty of time until I heard someone say 30 mins left. :eek: The problem with time started after my horse was sedated. The holder requested that the horse be sedated. Apparently the horse was nibbling on the holder too much. He went from giving me his feet by just touching the back of his leg to pulling 2X4s out of the ground. I still wanted a clean hoof prep and spent way too much time getting a nice clean trim on a horse that was ready to fall to the ground and was not responsive to me at all. Other guys worked on sedated horses as well and got a passing job done on time. So I should have been able to do the same, it was a huge challenge for me.

So I did a speedy job shaping two shoes to fit two different feet at the same time and was down to 7 mins with heels a little too long and not a perfect fit to a dimes width from the widest part of the foot back, one a little too wide and the other a little to narrow. The next step was to have the tester check the fit, but I knew time was running out and handed him the shoes as is and hoping to at least get them nailed on and scored on nailing and finish. The fit did not pass and I ran out of time.

I did finish the horse and trimmed his hind feet. Got some nice complements from the horse holder and a couple of others on the shoeing. :) It is what it is and no hard feelings. Time to look for the next certification date and location. Virginia sounds like a good idea.
I walked away with a ton of great information that will improve my efficiency, quality and help me in my everyday shoeing.

I had a great time and picked up some great techniques watching others work.
