A few weeks ago my horse got new shoes. Now this is a regular occurrence for her (every 8 weeks), and she spends most of her time asleep during the process! But this time I got my camera out to try to capture the atmosphere as she gets her new shoes on. I have a fantastic farrier (Wouter Duijns) who was willing for me to take his photos with my horse.
So enjoy the atmosphere – you will just have to images in the sounds of hammer on iron, and the smell of the burnt hoof as he fits the shoes, but you certainly see the smoke and the hard work that goes into every pair of shoes a horse gets on its feet.
