This is a trade like no other that we know of. You will find farriers that have shod horses for a living for 30 plus years, yet they still have a love and desire to get up every day and shoe another horse. Some travel around the world to pay for the fun of shoeing a horse at a contest. For many, shoeing horses is not what they do, but who they are. Chris is famous for asking, “Do you know what I like about shoeing horses?” The answer he gives is, “Everything!”
If you were created to shoe horses, then welcome to the craft. Find what you love to do, do that thing for a living, and you never have to work a day of your life.
