It is my goal to provide you with the highest level of customer service and performance hoof care available. If there is one thing that I am passionate about, it is practicing good horsemanship. I endeavor to build caring relationship with the horses that I work on.

What I do:
From an early age it was apparent that my Dad and I shared a common interest
in horses. I am very thankful for my Dad’s influence and background as a
horseman. My early memories of watching Dad work at the coal forge were
giving me a desire to follow in his footsteps. Having grown up working with
horses and demonstrating giftedness with them it was a natural fit when he
became part of the U.S. Cavalry. Through the training he received there, his
skills developed and he became a top farrier.
I also learned what good customer service looks like from my Dad. He owned a
small business in our small Minnesota town and taught me by example how to
courteously relate to people as we worked side by side.
My son, Lane, is a full-time farrier in Colorado. This makes him the 3rd generation of farriers in our family.
