Hi, i'm Andrew Sherman
My Farrier Background
I served four years for the United States Army Old Guard at the National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia. Funeral services were conducted on horseback with the esteemed Cassion platoon.
It was there that I was initated to the rigors of upkeep and care for all military horses, recieving the distinction of US Army Farrier - a position held by only one other.
Southwest Florida is home!
I'm a proud father, happy husband, and a passionate outdoorsman. We have a family homestead of horses, cows, pigs, and chickens in sunny Punta Gorda, Florida - we call it Kissing Cow Farms.
My ambition, through dedication and hard work, is to become the premier farrier in our local area, offering the highest quality care to all of my satisfied customers.
For the health, performance, and comfort of your Horse, Pony, or Donkey.
Prevent hoof problems, such as cracks, chips, or abscesses by trimming and carving excess hooves with a variety of tools, including nippers, rasps, and farrier knives.
Forge a custom-fitted horseshoe, apply it with high heat to the hoof, and maintain the horseshoes by reshaping or replacing worn ones.
Evaluate alignment of hooves and restore them to their natural and efficient shape. Occasionally, add extra support to the underside of the shoe with modern farrier materials such as pads, glue, or wooden clogs.
