No I don't know the farrier, but then my horse is barefoot so I don't have much to do with farriers. I have a barefoot trimmer who comes to do him. Since it's so rural round here there are lots of horsey folk. I am not into competing but there are lots of riding clubs and the showjumping crowd are quite active.
Thanks for adding me as a friend. I see you are in Manchester - not a million miles away from me. I'm in Anglesey now although originally from Stockport, via a long and torturous route around most of England and Wales.
