New shoes.

Six weeks have passed since the last set and it's time for some new shoes for the Memsahibs horse, Ben. It's always fascinating to watch the farrier at work and interesting to pick his brains about the anatomy of the hoof, it's a complex piece of work. It looks quite brutal at stages but the horse feels nothing more than some tugging and pulling (if the farrier gets it right). However if a nail goes awry watch out 😳, apparently it would be like having a nail shoved under our finger nail ouch!
