Blacksmiths: Shoe Making

I’ve never in my life seen a blacksmith at work and I have to say it was fascinating, really interesting to watch this at the Threshing out in Knock.  I took so many photos and it has been difficult to cut them back and even at this I still have too many!

The ‘making’ of the shoe

and then, we have the horse being shoed.  There were two horses and their owners standing to the side while each shoe was made.
