Got Shoes...Horseshoes, that is

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate

As an animal lover and horse owner, my clients often ask me who to call on for equine hoof care here in the Northern Neck of VA.  A light bulb flashed on last Tuesday as my horse was getting his "new shoes".

BLOG about it....    Meet Joe Cuthbertson, my farrier.

Northern Neck of VA ferrier               

This photo shows Joe Cuthbertson and Melissa Malandrinos as they are preparing to provide hoof care to my horse, Dusty.  Joe usually has his traveling companions Spirit and Moose along with him.  Spirit is an elderly but feisty, wire haired Jack Russell Terrier and Moose is a golden retriever.  Moose is just a youngster and learning the proper ferrier dog etiquette from Spirit.    We have been happy to welcome Melissa who is a graduate of the Heartland Horseshoeing School.  She has been working with Joe for her practical "hands-on" training.

Dusty getting new shoesJoe is a second generation farrier.  His father used to provide hoof care for Dusty prior to his retirement a couple years ago.  Joe, a graduate of VMI and of horseshoeing school, has been doing a good job of keeping Dusty's feet happy and healthy over the last few years.

He arrives like clockwork at his appointed time every six weeks to remove the old horse shoes, clean and trim back any extra unwanted hoof growth, and set the new shoes.

Dusty especially likes Joe's visits since he arrives with horse treats.  He gets excited when he sees the truck that is outfitted just for farrier services because he knows he will get new shoes, lots of petting, and sweet licorice flavored treats...mmm

So, if you need horse shoes, give Joe a call at 804-436-6041.
