“In a referral equine practice, we often see horses with conditions that Spurlocklogorequire ongoing care and therapy following discharge. We deal with many of the veterinarians, farriers and other care providers to make this transition as smooth and successful as possible.  But we rarely have a professional like Kevin who is so committed to the horse’s well-being and successful outcome, that he arrives for each follow-up appointment to be an active part of the horse’s care. Kevin is obviously a skilled farrier, but he seems to have a genuine regard for the horse and is clearly willing to give it that extra that can really make all the difference.  He has been a delight to work with. He brings good ideas and a great attitude to the team effort of horse care. We look forward to having opportunities to work with him on many cases in the future.”

“The most visible difference is on my 8-year-old OTTB, Dare Me To (aka Spanky). Spanky has a scar in his coronet before13band that has created a void in the hoof wall (aka, Big Scary Crack). His former shoer was on the right path, but didn’t quite have the knowledge to balance the foot and keep him at his best. When he let him go too long two cycles in a row, disaster struck, and Spanky was in so much pain he could barely stand. His front feet were such a wreck it was hard to believe that in early June of 2011 he had been in steady work and competing at Beginner Novice and Novice horse trials. After interviewing several farriers, all of whom wanted to “lace” the crack, or do something else very complicated and expensive, I called Kevin (aka, Who should have been My First Call). Kevin came down to my new location in Virginia and was able to make Spanky more comfortable right away. That first shoeing was in August of 2011, and the difference Kevin’s knowledge of equine biomechanics and his ability to think outside the box in shoeing this very difficult foot has been incredible. In only five shoeings he has not only corrected the original problem, but also improved the foot to the point where the crack is stable and a non-issue.”   ~ Cate Cohen, horse owner
