Equine Wellness Services is a holistic team approach to equine health. We specialize in barefoot trimming with patience and respect for the horse, whether a positive first trim for a foal or an older, arthritic horse needing a gentle hand. We are experienced with laminitis corrective trimming and transitioning horses out of shoes.
We do laboratory hay analysis with diet balancing. We perform fecal egg counts to insure safer deworming protocols. We fit and sell a variety of hoof boots.

Client comments say it best.
I would highly recommend Bob to anyone for their horse’s trims. He’s very calm and caring with the horses, whether it’s a young horse who just can’t stay still or an older horse who can’t keep their hooves up for very long. He will take however long it takes to get the job done right.
My TWH mare had extremely flat soles and run down heels when Bob started working on her. She now has a little concavity in her soles to make her more comfortable on gravel, and her heels are where they should be. Bob is willing to think outside the box for problem hooves, and actually used a synthetic polymer to “make” a heel for Lady until we could get her heels to where they should be.
Bob has also used the Easycare glue on shoes to help a rescue horse I had who had ringbone and metabolic syndrome be more comfortable in his last days. – Peggy Tucker
Bob and Laura are a crucial part of my horses’ wellness team. I have great peace of mind, knowing that I can rely on them to immediately address any concern I have. My horses have been barefoot for many years, but under Bob’s meticulous care, they have gone from elongated and flat with frogs that were narrow and constantly falling apart, to wild horse hooves – round, concave, with healthy frogs. Bob is endlessly patient with my horses, and mid-trim, will take them for a walk around the paddock or to get a drink – whatever it takes to keep them content. I greatly appreciate his concern for their emotional well-being, as well as their physical health. Bob and Laura are constantly adding to their storehouse of knowledge, and share it generously. Laura is always available to answer questions on nutrition, hay analysis, supplements. I have incorporated many of her suggestions into my feeding program and greatly appreciate her willingness to share her knowledge. I get a lot of compliments on my horses – they glow with health. I tell people, “I have a wonderful horse health team”. Bob and Laura are an indispensable part of that! – Joyce Strote
