Quite awhile ago, a lady in Texas here, found my website and decided she wanted to try the shoes on her little dwarf, Precious Toy(she IS a precious little thing!) Anyway, she told me her farrier's name was Mr. John Belcher who travels all over the TX, AR, OK, LA area trimming Miniature Horses. John used to be a Miniature Horse judge and I have shown to him many times, in fact he gave Bonnie Blue her champion of champions award when she was a weanling! Well anyway, I told this lady how I thought Toy needed to have her hooves trimmed before the shoes were applied. Apparently she printed everything out to show John and he was able to apply the shoe, which got Toy back to walking flat on her little hoof again! Well, this lead to another little horse of this lady's friend's, so I sent a special order shoe for her, which John applied and had great success with as well.

Since then John has ordered a dozen of the *Magic Shoes* in a variety of sizes and styles to have on hand, and just this morning ordered another 6, plus some glue & mixing tips, as I can get it a lot cheaper for him than he can buy it from the farriers supply stores.

When we first talked awhile back and he was raving about the shoes, I had asked him if he would consider endorsing the shoes...just write up a little something for me, and he said, "yes he would but that he wasn't very good with words"(not true!). Well I received a check from him but no statement.

Today after he told me that folks were telling him he was a "miracle worker" with these shoes, and he said he would get another check off to me right away, as he wanted to keep me happy, I told him, well, if ya REALLY want to make me happy, you'll write up that endorsement for me! He said, "I tell ya, I just ain't no good with words! You just write up somthin' and I will sign it, that ways you will make BOTH of us look good!" ....what a character John is!

He told me that I need to go to all the Miniature Horse shows in this area and set up a display of my shoes and information, and talk to folks about the shoes and answer questions....I had thought about doing that...guess I'd better!

John said he will be trimming at a large Miniature Horse farm in my area sometime the last of this month and wants to come to meet me & the Biscuits and learn more about the shoes and the dwarves as well. I'm really looking forward to meeting John in person!

This is so wonderful Janell and you truly are gifted with making these little shoes. Can't wait to see Dolly in them Very Happy Bless you for being such a generous, caring, compassionate, and hard worker for all the special little horses out there.

Thank you for your kind words Debi.

I just realized this afternoon, that I had not brought the threads from this section on over from the old Little Bit's Forum. Shocked

I would imagine there is still some more stuff I need to bring over as well, and I see that I had deleted a couple pictures of Toy's hoof trim from my PhotoBuucket album by mistake, too. Will have to fix that one of these day.
