Moving on With New Technology

The recently formed AAPF (American Association of Professional Farriers) offers membership based on educational credit hours acquired at farrier clinics, seminars, conferences, etc. Unlike other associations that have focused on development of blacksmithing skills and contest, the AAPF invites all farrier, veterinarian and horse interest organizations to become part of a united organization that educates and promotes the interest of all of it’s members. 

The AAPF introduced its members to the intuit credit card system, allowing receipt of credit cards via cell phone. No annual fee. 2.7% per transaction. Marshall & Associates now accepts credit/debit cards.

Reminder: This year’s Podiatry Clinic’s will focus on review of founder shoeing techniques and move on to introducing new techniques in working with Crushed Heels, Club Foot, Flat Foot, Navicular  and other hoof related diseases and injuries.The Spring Horse Owner Informational Clinic will be at Georgetown Farm Supply Hwy.29 west of IH35.
