Modern Day Farriers

Farriers - Practicing an ancient trade in a modern world.


 
Farrier's HorseshoeFarriers have been shoeing the feet of horses for centuries. In the early days of American history, virtually every town and community had at least one farrier.

Many larger farms and ranches even had their very own farrier on the payroll. 

One would think it would be a lost art in today's high-tech world, but it isn't.

The popularity of horses as pets and "recreational vehicles" has given the farrier a new lease on life. In most rural areas of the country one can easily find one when your horse needs a set of shoes or a hoof trim.

And while the traditional steel horseshoes are still used extensively, new polymer materials and adhesives have revolutionized the tools of the trade.
