Daisy A. Bicking owns and operates Daisy Haven Farm, Inc., a multi-farrier practice in South Eastern Pennsylvania.
Daisy started in hoof care in 2003 when her own horse foundered. Quickly realizing her passion for feet motivated Daisy to start Daisy Haven Farm, Inc. which rehabilitates the equine foot on and off site, specializing in horses with metabolic disorders and laminitis. Daisy has studied a broad spectrum of barefoot trimming styles, composite material applications, and other alternative support options with KC LaPierre, ELPO, Monique Craig, Mike Salvoldi, and more. She attends and presents at the Int’l Hoof Care Summit, The Laminitis Conference and other seminars annually.
Daisy strives for a team approach to whole horse rehabilitation. She utilizes extensive documentation of the foot via digital photography and radiography maintaining a database of over 200,000 pictures and corresponding X-rays. Daisy also teaches courses in recognizing tissue distortion of the foot and composite material application domestically and abroad. See DaisyHavenFarm.com for more information on podiatry service and educational opportunities.
Terry has always loved horses. The dream of having her own horse was met when they acquired Pancho, a quarter horse gelding. After attending a local talk given by KC La Pierre, Terry hoped to have Pancho go barefoot.
However, Poncho had a myriad of hoof problems including poor quality hoof wall, recurring abscesses, distorted hoof capsules, tripping problems and uncomfortable gaits. She began her journey to improve Pancho’s feet and after attending many hoof educational programs and completing several diverse apprenticeships decided to put her teaching to use as a full-time hoof care specialist. Terry takes special pride in providing support and education to her clients. Teamwork between horse owner and hoof care provider is essential in creating the best foot on the horse possible!
Terry is committed to continuing her education on the hoof and horse as she attends many educational clinics, conferences and events such as The Laminitis Conference and The International Hoof Care Summit.
