Professional Farrier – February 2013
Professional Farrier: There are several ways to view your PF. It will arrive in your inbox from Equine Veterinarian with links to both Magazines. You will also find links on the AFA web site and Facebook page. If you have been viewing the new digital PF on line and find it grainy and hard to read, just scroll over the page and click your mouse to expand and enlarge to full page view and it will be crisp and easy to read. We get both the Professional Farrier and Equine Veterinarian. There is a great article in the new Equine Veterinarian about How to build your practice in a down economy. Suggested reading for any farrier looking to grow in the business.
