New Shoes....

By clevercloggs
One from the files.
The horse shoes would be removed and then new ones put on by a blacksmith which had all his gear in the back of a van, including a little furnace where he would heat up the steel shoes..
The horse seems to take the fitting of shoes with a certain indifference.

You said one from the files and certainly a lot of filing going on there! Viewed it large and liked it even more!

Award is for the detail in every inch!

Hi Leonid,
Thank you for your comment and your User Award.
It is one of those images you stumble on If you wander around places.
In this case a number of stables belonging to a polo club on a Sunday afternoon.
Not much going on and then I bump into this blacksmith changing shoes. Made my day..
