Over the weekend, Matt, our farrier, came to put new shoes on Captain Andrew and Candace. Like growing children, horses need to have proper fitting shoes. And, not having proper shoes means the horses would be unable to compete at a high level.
Matt travels with plenty of gear which includes an electric hearth, anvil, assorted hammers, assorted nails and such. With the girls knowing how to properly trim and file hooves, and maintain the shoes, he’s said they’ve made his job easier. In addition to being our farrier, Matt also does farrier work for JN Ranch and several other working ranches.
