Wow...I am a bit overwhelmed with the response I have gotten on this image. Thank you all very much for all your wonderful comments. To answer Lori D's question this was shot outside of my parents barn. I am very lucky that the farrier my parents use is also an artist and he was more than happy to let me hang around an get some photos of him working. I will be posting a few more images too.
