A farrier at work!
Gave Matt the day off yesterday, my grandson, so he could stay here at the ranch and just relax for the day. He is on vacation after all.
Went over to the Membres valley to have two horse shod. I could not believe I could not find a farrier over here but I tried. I went over to Sue’s place cause her farrier was going to be there and he would have time to get it done for me. It takes 2 hours to get to Sue’s so it’s pretty much the day by the time you get their get shoes, and get home, but it's done.
Casino got his first pair of shoes and Jene, his mom, will be happy to know that Mondo was the one that put them on for me. Mondo is Jene’s farrier. Mondo thinks the world of Jene and Jene thinks the world of Mondo. So, although it was not planned I think it turned out pretty well to have Mondo put on his first pair of shoes.
Mondo, besides being a really good farrier, is a heck of a nice guy. He pointed out to me what the was doing and why he was doing it. I told him that I shoe my own horses, mainly because of the cost. He said he understood that, and was more then willing to help me out. I’m not sure if anyone in the Silver City NM area is looking for a good farrier but if you are, Mondo is your man. I’m not sure if he is taking on any new clinics but if you are interested let me know and I will get you his number.
Going to work with the grandkids and horses after I work with Casino and Pepe. Should be a fun day.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
