Finding the right trimmer for you and your horse is an exercise well worth the effort. If you ask the right questions, you gain a good feel for the person and professionalism of any potential trimmer you may be talking to.
Not only does this show you're interested in the well being of your horse, it can also save heartache. If any farrier or trimmer gets abusive, or simply doesn't have the time to spare to answer your questions, you can be certain you're doing your horse a favor when you hang up the phone.
Never be afraid to ask questions, especially when things are set in stone. A well timed "why?" has been known to change the world.
