The city girl goes to the country

Anyone know what a farrier is?

Yeah, I didn't either until I met one. Don't say I never taught you anything..."A farrier is a specialist in equine hoof care, including the trimming and balancing of a horse's hoof and the placing of shoes to the horse's foot..." (Thanks wikipedia!)

My morning with Matt Stonnell, horse farrier...
I, of course, had no idea what really goes on. In my mind he was just going to hurt the horse. I was happy to find that the horse didn't seem to care.

That's right, I looked the horse in the eyes....and I took my picture.
and Matt at work!

see, the horse cares more about me taking his picture than whats going on with his feet.

Apparently this is why they call it hot shoeing...cause its hot!

Everyone loves a pedicure...
