Fred EmmerigCP Hoof Care (trimmer)
Areas covered: Freisland and North Netherlands
My name is Fred Emmerig and I am living in the Netherlands. The nothern part called Friesland.
A professional barefoot trimmer since 2006 and since 2010 UKNHCP certified.
Because of the bad condition of my Fjord horse feet (has been shod since she was 3 years old) I became intrested in the natural feet of horses. The feet are better now in spite of her easy-to-become-laminatic issue in spring.
After all the years of trimming it is clear to me, that you have to watch the conditions the horse is living in.
Besides horses and ponys I trim donkeys.
I love the donkeys and with every donkey 5 euros are going to a donkey sanctuary in Spain.
The region I am trimming in is Friesland. And some places further away. But because of the travelingtime I am limiting the region to Friesland now. I have to take care of more than 200 horses.
And every day I learn more. I think its a lifetime school .
