Clipping ends of nails

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 28 July 2018 in Lifestyle & Culture.

The nails that hold the shoe on are long enough to poke out at the edges of the hoof. All the hoof is like our nails; the horse feels nothing. The nail ends need to be clipped off, then filed.

Excellent image of a very skilled Blacksmith. Many times back home in Ireland, I have watched many of these very skilled people work. A magnificent image. Superb composition. 5*

It looks like hard work but the horse seems calm enough.
