Lost all my farrier tools back in 06, and hurt my back as well. Kinda quit shoeing after that, and just hired it done. I've used about every farrier in driving distance. Couple guys left, that are excellent, but they are in the $100 range. Long story short, I'm going back to doing it myself. Took the afternoon off yesterday, and went and bought one of everything, except an anvil. Spent $600 before I was done. Not looking forward to it, and plan on doing 2 feet per horse per day, till I'm done. Hope it's like riding a bike, and it falls back in place.
