Our Handsome Farrier.

Many people have asked "What is a farrier?" Here are some pictures of our farrier. Farriers trim horses hoofs and put shoes on them. It can be a tedious job. You definitely get a good work out while shoeing horses. It is very rewarding though.

Sorry these are all so blurry. Its hard to take good pictures while the person is moving. These are pictures of Derek trimming a horse hoof. As you can see, it requires lots of leg power to be able to sqaut for a while while holding the horses hoof with your legs. Derek does a fantastic job.
