Learn More About His Philosophy

Allan began his farrier career in 1983 when a farrier friend taught him the basics of hoof care. At that time he primarily did only his own and a few friends, but in the early '90's he saw an opportunity to make a business of it. Allan began striving to excel and learn the trade in depth by attending numerous clinics and conferences. For the past fifteen years or so, Allan has regularly attended the American Farriers Journal Hoof Care Summit in Cincinnati. This has been a turning point in the farrier industry by bringing farriers, vets and scientific research together for the advancement of farriery.

Allan will be giving a lecture at the NDHE. Make sure to come out and learn more about his philosophy on hoof care in a round table open format.
