time honored tradition ~ steel shoes and patient horses

For all the modern developments over the years through the centuries, it's nice to be part of something that is largely unchanged over time. The need for steel horse shoes to be shaped and applied to horses hooves about every eight weeks is something most people don't know about if they don't have horses in their lives. Here's a brief look at the process of putting 16 horse shoes on yesterday at the barn by Chris Minick of Farrier Art ~ some of the most difficult work out there and interesting to watch.
