Hoof care plays an important role in horse health, and Blacksmith Buddy would like to recognize farriers’ hard work!
Filing the grown out hoof to maintain a healthy shape.
Putting the shoes on.
Hammering in the nails.
Turning up the heat.
Working from sunrise to sunset.
Shoeing isn’t just for horses.
Using the heated shoe to prepare the hoof for application.
Finding the silver lining.
Getting a trim.
Reluctantly waiting for new shoes.
Removing the excess horn.
Making sure the shoe is correct.
Patience is a virtue.
Adding the finishing touch!
There’s nothing like freshly done nails.
Using a stand to make filing easier.
