The Farrier At Work

     At Bob and Becky's farm we all enjoyed watching the farrier, Ron, hard at work, re-shoeing the horses and mules.

     The animals are not fond of getting a manicure, so he has to be both charmingly persuasive and firmly assertive in his treatment of these gigantic animals.

      He has to be talented and strong. 

Plus he was very receptive to our admiring crew of Grandchildren and Grandmother.

Ben enjoyed watching atop a stack of hay bales.

Sofie rode the dog while she waited to ride the horses.

After the farrier finished his work the children got their ride!

Page is large enough to hold all four at once, with such gentleness.
