My son Will and I have decided on doing an occasional blog/ vlog featuring the daily goings on in the business and lifestyle of being a farrier in Cincinnati.
I expect this to be a light sprinkling of articles and videos of daily shoeing and some ramblings of mine as I go. I do love to create content and would love to do a lot more of this, but I know myself better than to actually expect anything close to a daily release like some people manage to do.
It’s my typical Monday off.
I have been taking Mondays off since the days when I was the show farrier and show producer at Paxton Farm, working pretty much every weekend. I had to have a recovery day to get some other life things done and it is so convenient that I still do it today – even though it has been a long time since I have been doing the show farrier thing.
Now I use it for make up days and for doing the behind the scenes things that I like to get done. Of course sometimes – for absolutely nothing in particular.
Anyway, today I’m working on this website and Will and I are going to go out and make some hoof picks to put in our new store and work on some of our forging videos.
We have so many ideas and we are getting things done.
It will be a while before we find our groove and get really consistent, but we will get there.
I think I’ll publish this and probably come back this evening and fill it out with what we get done today.
