World Champion Horseshoers

I just have to share these videos! These guys are amazing! It brings back many memories of the horses I put shoes on and all the forge work I did. In the Eagle Eye competition you get to see these guys forge weld, I did that, too! Wow, it is something for me to think about, I could do everything that you see in these videos.

I was a professional horseshoer in another life, I am a graduate of the Horseshoeing School at Montana State University and I was certified by the American Farriers Association.

What different paths we follow in our lives!

  1. Wow - what a show! Those are genuine hand skills in action, no question. Really enjoyed the first film - I'm coming back to see the second one later.

    A while back you were thinking about the design of your label that you put on your guitars - how about a horse shoe shape? You must be the only luthier qualified to use it!

    Thanks Wilson.

  2. Thanks, Rob, for the suggestion of using a horseshoe in my guitar label, it's a good idea! Maybe I should also put a forge and anvil in the design, too!
