The United Kingdom Horse Shoers Union
The voice of the farrier.
A FARRIER'S GUIDE TO PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT, THIRD DRAFT,
AUGUST 2002 from the Farriers Registration Council has had a very cool
response from farriers. The FRC wrote to registered farriers asking for
comments but the document was only available by request. UKHSU sent a
copy to all our members. We have not had any favourable comments about
the draft code which is very long, confusing, repetitive, contradictory
and irrelevant. As one farrier said "The Draft Codes of Conduct are
patronising and dictatorial. If properly written they could be greatly
reduced in length and cover areas specific only to farriers."
