About the Book

We are all standing on the shoulders of giants. This is Chris’ story of the many farriers and blacksmiths who helped him in his journey to become a mentor to so many folks in this industry. Ever the master story teller, Chris’ accounts of his time with these legends are filled with insights, wisdom and humour. I caught myself laughing out loud more than a few times while reading this. As the first instalment in a series of Chris’ memoirs, I can’t wait for the ones to come. From his humble beginnings as a cold shoer supporting his rodeo habit, to the legendary teacher and clinician he is today, this is Chris’ story of the mentors who helped him along the way.
