Hello HCBC Members,
During these uncertain times many things can cause us concern and stress. I would like to take this opportunity to re-assure every horse owner, that Farriers are still working and will continue to work. As the President of the Western Canadian Farriers Association, I know our members are keen to continue providing care for your horses and will work with you to establish a protocol that will keep yourselves and your families safe.
At this point farriers are considered an essential service, and we want to be able to keep ourselves safe so we can continue to work. In light of current events, the WCFA has established some guidelines to help you set up a protocol with your farrier, this will ideally keep everyone healthy and keep your horses happy.
