Event Description

Saturday, October 19, 1–4 p.m.
"Shoe shoddy fellow fine, can you shoe this horse of mine?" He (or she) can if they're a farrier! Traditionally a farrier's work would have included horseshoeing, the fabrication and repair of tools, the forging of architectural pieces, and more, while modern day farriers usually focus their efforts on the care of horses' hooves. Explore this unique trade and how the job of the farrier is different from a blacksmith, and see some of the tools involved in this job.
