When I was 17, I informed my dad that I wanted be a cowboy. I guess that’s what comes from watching too many “Gunsmoke” episodes. I just had a feeling that a desk job wasn’t in my future. My dad nodded, then told me that if I wanted to ride horses, I’d have to work with them first. So I apprenticed with a farrier, and I’ve been working up under horses ever since. That was 36 years ago.
Being a farrier isn't for the feint-hearted. One look at my hands — and my knees — will tell you that. But there’s nothing else I’d rather do. Or folks I’d rather be around.
Horse health starts with the hoof.
As a Certified Journeyman Farrier, I’ve shod horses of every breed and kind — from Maine to California, North Dakota to Texas and everywhere in between. I’ve also had the honor of working with the best farriers, trimmers and cowboys in the business. They put their blood, sweat and backs into caring for the welfare of animals. And they know that the health of a horse starts from the ground up.
In the 36 years I’ve been shoeing horses, by far the best products I’ve used for hoof care are made by Vettec. That’s because Vettec knows what farriers, trimmers and horses need, first-hand: A product that’s easy and quick to apply, performs consistently, and keeps horses moving comfortably.
First-hand farrier experience.
Decades of industry experience go into making each Vettec product. So does advanced chemistry that no one else has been able to duplicate (and believe me, they’ve tried). Vettec asks for and respects the input of working farrier and trimmers when developing their products. And they test those products for reliability, durability and performance. So it’s no wonder why Vettec has continued to deliver consistent results for over 20 years — almost as long as me.
Everything Vettec does is driven by animal welfare. And the success of the farriers and trimmers who keep those animals moving. That’s why I’m proud to work with Vettec to help strengthen our profession, promote the health of horses, and share hoof-care expertise around the world.
