    A word from Shane Ellis, Master Farrier.......

    I believe that the aim of all farrier work should be to preserve, protect and enhance your horses' feet and maximise their soundness and athletic ability.

    Years of experience and a dedication to constantly improving my craft has given me the competence and confidence to keep the horses in my care sound, performing at their best and my clients happy.

    As a dedicated professional you can expect punctuality, reliability and a genuine interest in your horses' well being from me.

    Ayr Hill Equestrian Centre

    I am pleased to announce that my new workshop at Ayr Hill Equestrian Centre is nearing completion. From Saturday the 13th of September I will be situated on site all day every second Saturday. I will be offering a full service including hot shoeing and remedial work. The facilities are excellent with a designated fully undercover shoeing area. Arena hire is available with your booking, so you will be able give your freshly shod horse a solid workout!! I am really excited about this new venture and feel that it adds another dimension to the business.
    For bookings please contact me on 0417 535 446.

    Now working weekends

    Due to the difficulty many clients have in finding the time to schedule in week day appoinments i am now taking bookings for both Saturdays and Sundays. It makes life easier for me with my bookings and less stressful for those who are constantly busy during the week.

    New Articles

    In response to many enquiries I have written a new series of articles the gist of which (i hope) demonstates what comprises a healthy hoof and what to look for in assessing the health of your horse's feet. If this is of interest to you please take 10 minutes to read through them. They are fairly straightforward and not at all boringly technical. They are titled 'no foot no horse' and may be found under the articles tab.

    On that subject, interesting article in thehorse.com http://www.thehorse.com/articles/. Regardless of your views on the barefoot movement I believe the key message here is that the health of your horse's feet ultimately comes down to the skill and knowledge of the hoof care professional (read farrier) who tends to them.

    Tarwin Vet Group affiliation

    Every second Thursday for the past 2 years I have been attending the Tarwin Vet Group www.tarwinvetgroup.com.au large animal centre in Leongatha. I am pleased to say that relationship is still going strong. I consider it is a wonderful bonus for the equine community in South Gippsland to have this facility available. For bookings please call the Large Animal Clinic on 5662 2251.
