Serendipity Sunday - Farriers and Horseshoers
I came across one of these magazines and it interested me because I have a friend whose husband is a farrier...
A farrier doesn't just put shoes on horses, they have to know what kind of shoes to put on a horse for the job he does. The farrier is like a pedicurist and podiatrist in one - a total hoof specialist.
A farrier in the British Army in 1899 was of a higher rank and was paid more than a shoeing-smith.
Did you have an ancestor that was a farrier or a horseshoer?
