You can shoe horses without a State License?

Our legislature is clearly not doing it's job of protecting horse owners against unscrupulous horse shoers. I looked HERE and I find absolutely no effort to regulate unscrupulous horse shoers.

This article in the Knoxville News Sentinel about a successful horse farrier is soooo scary. How do people know who to hire. Who says this guy is good? Certainly not the State of TN, there is no license requirement for horse shoers. This guy could be a serial horseshoe criminal?

People spend hundreds of thousands on horses and are expected to rely on their own good common sense to make this decision?
