I have been trimming and shoeing horses since I was 15, about 10 years ago. I do not however have 10 years of experience. I joined the Navy 4 and a half years ago and have a little less than 5 years before I get out. I have intentions of starting back up when I return from deployment later this year. I don't expect to be profitable or even make my start up cash back any time soon, I hope to work up to 8 or so horses a week, MAX. as I still have my day job in the navy and also have to schedule around my ships sea schedule. My question how ever is about the cost of equipment. I have a 2011 F150 with the 5.5 ft bed with cover that I will work out of. What should I expect to spend initially to cover most of what I will need? I have an Idea, just want to get others opinions. Thank you.

Anvil new; $400.00 and up depending on size, weight, and manufacturer. Even a used one will cost around this price.
Tongs are $60. and up for brand names
Nippers, good ones are over $150. now
Hoof knife, good one is $35.00 and up
Apron, new is close or over $100.
and that just gives you a tiny corner of what to expect for costs.

You still have to have shoe's, nails, rasps, pullers, clinchers, etc....
BARE essentials will cost you $1000. setting yourself up with most of what you need may run from $2500. and up. Then there is gas for your truck and propane is around $45. for small bottles now.

Don't let my picture mislead you. I am 64 and been shoeing for 43 years. That is just a blast from the past.

my 2 cents worth

Thanks for your response, I know the tools can be costly but I'm not so much worried about the cost being too much as just making sure I properly budget for the expense. I have a day job that will keep my belly full, I'm just preparing to make sure that I am ready for the career change when the time comes, the cost is only an investment to my future so I don't mind the expense. I'm probably going to try to take a class or two at some point to help get caught back up and get my body back used to the routine. If anyone else has any insight to any other expenses that may be often overlooked please inform me. Thank you in advance for your help.

Another major item would be a forge. $500 to $1000. Blacksmith forums like Iforgeiron have lots of do it yourself instructions, but I think your time would be better spent in learning the trade rather than building your own forge. Go for a two burner model.

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

Shoe inventory - I basically carry four styles - plain, plain in a wide web, rim, full crease in a wide web, but take four styles, four sizes, three sets of each and a few specialty shoes is a $500 to $600 investment. Right now I can buy from my local ranch store in small lots as cheaply as I can order and pay freight. You have to assess, your own situation there.

Thank you for your replies, I have most of the big items figured out I think, I believe I'm going to go with the NC tool whisper momma forge and an NCtool anvil. I like spending money in my home state whenever possible so whenever possible NC tool will get my business. I'm also pretty comfortable spending the money on GE tools where I feel quality is paramount. I would like to here more about the consumables you might suggest keeping in stock. A lot of the horses in the area get along fine with only keg shoes and most don't get clips or anything special unless it has some sort of issue. I plan to keep bar stock on hand as it would allow me to fill any gaps in my inventory. What other things do you guys use often, such as vet wraps, medicines, horsemanship type gear etc.? Thanks again for your replies, all insight is appreciated.

Whisper Momma is what is in my truck, good forge, A pro forge and an aging Mankle special plus four (1976) in the shop. By the way, Bruce is a kid, I was doing feet when he was barely out of diapers, glad he is still doing the big guys.. Consumables and stuff, wait until you see what's needed. My high cold desert doesn't even resemble NC. I would state that things like Vettec, while great products, are pricey, have a shelf life and a temperature sensitivity. I still carry some old fashioned and cheaper stuff like Forcheners, poly propylene felt, copper sulfate and venice turp for hoof packing. Let me know if you need detail.

Feel free to provide any detail you would like, any and all would be appreciated. But I'll probably take your advice and purchase those products as the need for them arises. I have compiled a list that I'm pretty confident will cover my needs for quite sometime, though I am open to further suggestions and personal experiences. Are there any items you realized you never use but have carried around for a while?

Don't forget a hoof stand. Hoof Jack is pricey, but there's a reason it's so popular. I find the hardest thing to find to satisfy me is a shoeing apron. Best go to a supply house and try out a bunch. Check inside leg coverage, is the pocket big enough and low enough to be out of the way of the horse, stuff like that. I'vs had a half dozen of them, still have 3, but I prefer the FPD brand, fabric with leather patches.

It might make sense for you to go to school. Several accept GI bill students.

I've used hoof jack and I prefer it really, mostly due to the fact that I feel less damage would be done if there were an accident with a hard headed horse (or owner). I'm certain that's the route I'm going. I'm contemplating having an apron made for me as I tend to be picky about them too. If I don't get around to that, I have my eye on the NC tool cordura(sp?)apron. It could at least be a back up later on. I hadn't thought to look into schools that offer GI bill benefits, could you provide a list of schools that fall under GI bill requirements? Not being lazy, I just don't know what schools are credible and which aren't. Thanks for the info.

This has been my best hoof packing under a pad. Can be a bit messy, but inexpensive, no real problem with shelf life or temperature sensitivity for someone starting out and having stuff like vettec get old. The polypropylene felt helps repel water, the copper sulfate stops fungus and the Venice turp hardens the sole. The copper sulfate is available in most hardware stores as a root killer. The hoof felt (or similar name) and the Turp from farrier supply places.

Thanks Jack, that's good information and may very well add this to my list early on. Thrush and white line have been known to be nuisances during the wet months, so I could benefit from this I'm sure.
