This is one of my oldest clients (as in I’ve been working for her for the longest) and the only one I still go to Kentucky for. I still go there because I can make the trip, work on as many I my body can stand and go home. I don’t have to bounce around from stop to stop.

They also don’t call to ask me to come down if they have a shoe off (which almost never happens here anyway) which is really nice of them. It wouldn’t really work any other way as its a good hour away from my house.

Oh, the nostalgia. I used to shoe so many horses in this area back from the ’90s through maybe about 2015 or so when I really cut out most stops down here.

There is just something about this place that I really love.

Gotta clean this mess up before I can work.

I really wish I didn’t have to clean up my work area before I can get started on shoeing and trimming. Its a waste of my time and not really my job. I find it interesting how much more common it is that I have to do this these days compared to the past.

Horse people have a much different attitude these days and just are not as thoughtful and concerned as they used to be.

My spot for the day.
Finally getting started.

Sandi had a lot going on this morning.
No fan, no farrier.

I had a fairly long list to work on, as usual. Besides the general chaos and filth that they seemed bent on causing, it was a pretty nice day.
