Hi Cat, I learned something seeing this.....I thought they just filed the hoof flat......it must make an interesting sound and smell. Well done...SmileAlan

Hi Alan, and thank you. The 'Journeyman Farrier' is worth his weight in gold in the US. The hot shoe method is the best way as they can seat the shoe on the hoof perfectly. Plus it's less stress on their wrists and arms than the cold shoe method. The smell does take some getting used to. Lol. Cat

An excellent capture of this! Love the smoke and the way you have caught his face through it. Viv

Nice capture. I like the way the smoke makes its way up against his body, and looking at his face i feel he is holding his breath through all this

Hi James and you are right about him holding his breath, it isn't a pleasant smell, but I suppose you become accustomed to it. Thanks for your comments.Cat

Thank you, eirigurd. It certainly is a dying art. This young man loves his work and the horse - he is my farrierSmileCat
