It shouldn't happen to a farrier - Horse & Hound | Roland's nags and nails blog

It shouldn't happen to a farrier - Horse & Hound | Roland's nags and nails blog | Hoofcare and Lameness | Scoop.it

The life of a farrier’s apprentice is one huge learning curve. I find that things need to happen two or three times before they start to sink in as there’s just so much to take on board.

I'm looking forward to Roland's book, should he write one, and have already suggested to him that his blog could be collected into an instant bestseller!

Marcel Veart-Smith: Rood and Riddle Podiatry engineering department | New Zealand, Equine Trader | Hoofcare and Lameness | Scoop.it
Farrier Marcel Veart-Smith recently won a scholarship to attend Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky, to further develop his knowledge and skills. Marcel grabbed an Equine Trader camera to record some of his experiences.


Join Marcel and Neil Houston from Veterinary Associates in South Auckland as they find their way around this great facility and meet some of the interesting people who work there.


Today they check out the engineering department and watch a little bit of the process of shoemaking.
