Ranchlands Down Under: Shoeing School

July 8, 2016

by

Sam is an apprentice on Chico Basin Ranch. As part of her apprenticeship, she spent eight months working on a cattle station in Australia.

  Recently the station hosted a two day shoeing clinic with master farrier Bill Hutton to educate the stock hands on proper trimming and shoeing techniques. It was incredible to learn from someone who was so knowledgeable. At the end of the course Bill even let me hot fit a shoe after I shaped it to the foot- it was the highlight of the clinic for me.
