  1. These horses are so wonderful! They have the personality of a puppy dog. The one I worked with used to try and rest his head on my shoulder. He would have climbed in my pocket it he'd fit!

  2. I’d be curious to know what kind of rate you guys are getting for a full set on those big horses?

  3. There is no certification necessary to start your own farrier business here in the Wild West..Anyone can shoe a horse or teach a riding lesson or buy a semi automatic firearm with 0 education on the matter at hand..yee haw!

  4. My grandad used to have a pair of Suffolk Punch horses. So beautiful and even tempered. Gentle giants, they were.

  5. Cracking fantastic work guys. I've had horses all my life, starting at 3 when my uncle sat me on the back of one of his Shires named Samson. All I would say was "Mine! Mine!" sitting crossed legged on the back of this gentle giant I fell in love. A love that remains, however, due to a back and neck injury, my daughters have my 4 horses between them. I've had Farriers come and Farriers go. Over the years I got that I could recognise a master farrier. You my friend are a master farrier. I'd like to thank you and your team for looking after the funder mental part that makes or breaks a horse, it's feet. I just wish you had been around when I was riding Convoy my 17:2 Hanavaran.. He had feet like dinner plates. Lol..
    I've just subbed. 😁

  6. Well done. I'm glad to see this is a channel I can subscribe to I like what you're doing. We have very few Suffolk punches in the u.s. being registered. I'm glad there's some in there country of origin.

  7. Great film very interesting, is that a Cats head hammer Lawrence is using? and where did he get it? Thanks very much

  8. I absolutely love your vibe! So many farriery videos I watch have a sort of "I'm bigger and better than you'll ever be" vibe – whereas you're promoting education and encouraging people to get into the industry. I love it. THANK YOU for being an ambassador!

  9. the climate is very similar here in NZ yet we do very little hot shoeing ( that i know of anyways)…ive been told its good for seedy toe as well as getting the best fit to the hoof but can you tell me any other reasons why? just out of interest…cheers.

  10. I’ve been a farrier for 22 yrs and you guys do some of the nicest work I’ve seen! Just wondering why you guys don’t use a finishing stand or a hoof jack for those big horses..? Awesome work tho!

  11. Wow. I haven't done a set on a big one in 8 years.  I felt every tug and pull.  No hoof stand or cradle????  Are they not aloud over there?
