From eBay and Amazon

NOTE: Many, but not all, of the farrier-specific business cards we've seen on eBay have been from international sellers (often, the United Kingdom). However, many international sellers will ship to the USA, and they might have the business cards you're looking for.

Farriers, Blacksmiths, and Horseshoers, Oh My!

A farrier is a person who specializes in the care of a horse's hooves. While farriers are knowledgeable in many aspects of hoof care, they are perhaps best known for their skills in trimming horses hooves and shoeing horses.

A blacksmith is a person who makes or repairs things made of iron or steel. A farrier is a type of blacksmith with a specialty in the care and/or shoeing of a horse's hooves. (Note: While farriers typically work with metal to shoe horses, they might work with other materials also.) Blacksmiths (including farriers) can "cold" shape metal (including horseshoes), meaning they create, repair, or shape metal without the use of heat, or they can use a heat source, such as a forge, to make the metal temporarily more pliable while they work with it.

Defining the word "horseshoer" can be a bit tricky. To many people a horseshoer and farrier are the same thing. For other folks, though, the words are somewhat different: They use the word "horseshoer" for anyone who shoes horses, and use the word "farrier" for those who have had a formal education in the craft, such as at a trade school.
