|The bestseller is back in print!|
Shoeing the lame ones and the champions, independent-minded horseshoers traveled “The Circuit”, lived in tents, never quite got rich, but could always get those coal fires lit. This is an important book, for beneath humorous tongue-in-cheek depictions of life on the backside, you will witness the roots of the 1970s and 1980s renaissance of farrier skills in America; nowhere was shoeing more important than at harness tracks, where swedging stock and making bar shoes were all in an hour’s work.
