"I could write volumes about Mike's superior skills as a farrier regarding both the uncomplicated horse and the seemingly impossible corrective job. However, an equally vital part of this picture is Mike as a person and a professional.
Without reservation, I can say that Mike is unsurpassed in his level of professionalism, dedication and customer service. Mike Poe is, simply put, unparalleled."
Nandi Veterinary Associates
"Mike is a young guy but he shoes like a farrier with 25 years experience. There's a couple of ways he did this. A lot of hard work, sweat, time under the horse and standing by a hot forge. Mike's figured out the most important part of being a great farrier is THE HORSE."

"I have had the opportunity to work with Mike Poe, CJF, for the last 2 years and I am beyond impressed with this young and accomplished farrier!
His combination of skilled and educated technique along with his professionalism and horsemanship make working with Mike a pleasure. He is an asset to the University of Maryland horses and students!"
Corey Minnick, CJF
AFA Certified Journeyman Farrier
"Mike is a no-nonsense traditionalist when it comes to farriery. He puts the horse's needs first, and uses his knowledge of anatomy and physiology to do what is right by the animal.
In a day and age where fads are all
too prevalent, few have the dedication to cut through the crap and address
each horse as an individual. My friend, Mike Poe, is one of the few."

Executive Director (former)

"Mike is a great guy and very dependable. He can do just about anything and readily hot shoes and forges."
