Farriers are the best. They spend their days traveling from one farm to another, never knowing what surprises might greet them at their next stop. They don’t complain when they have to sidle up to a mud-covered horse, contend with a mouthy pony or struggle with Bertha, the draft horse who doesn’t feel like picking up her feet today.
