Luckily he's not bad looking either (even if he is northern:wink:) and I can't understand him half the time :bounce:

He is a bit young for me though :giggle:


Nice Picture but the hammer needs to be bigger for belting them in the ribs when they dont stand.

Now, now! Not all farriers are thick and like barbarians! Just remember, some horses don't find barefoot easy!

ACTUALLY ...........I think somebody has drawn the Man of my Dreams:giggle:

I have a farrier who 'trims'............He reckons I would be crazy to put shoes on either of mine, he is a
'Podiatrist' apparently so I am told...........whatever that is ?

My horse was hit by a well known barefoot trimmer, so it's not just a farrier thing. (She was sacked before the next trim, after which with new trimmer horse came fully sound...)

My New Farrier was actually perfectly happy to keep Hens barefoot but I asked for fronts to go on.
