The Farrier’s Job

Today’s agenda at the ranch was shoeing. Here’s a few pictures of a Paint horse getting new shoes… and the farrier gettin’ er done.

This is a two hour job for shoes front and behind. During this time I was told walking too close behind the horse to clean up manure (for him) was dangerous. Ok, I suppose that’s good advice…


However, it’s sure hard to take advice from a guy who isn’t concerned about the potential danger of having a mouth full of shoeing nails.

Geez! Talk about an accident waiting to happen!
